Our Character Trait of the month is Enthusiastic. Parents please reinforce this word at home whenever possible.

The school year has came to an end, it has been fun, exciting, challenging and a great year! The students have learned so much and have grown over the year. 

Our teachers and staff have enjoyed getting to know your children and are going to miss them over summer break.

During summer break, enjoy your children but please make sure they read books, review multiplication/division facts, review sight words, etc.  This will help the students be prepared when they return in August.
