Monday, May 25: Memorial Day - NO SCHOOL
Friday, June 5: Noon Dismissal, LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
As the school year winds down, it's easy to start to "let go" a little early. I know nights are busy with sports, and kids are antsy to be done, but I strongly encourage all of you to hold on just a bit longer! The final weeks of school will be fun (yes!), but will also be filled with end-of-the-year assessments and work samples. Thank you for understanding!
