Principal’s MemoPosted on
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Fourth quarter progress report grades will be available for viewing today so please check with your child regarding their school work. Also please pay close attention to the “Upcoming Important Dates” section at the bottom of the memo so you can mark your calendars. Here are the communications for this week.
