You are invited to attend a celebration of learning on Thursday, May 12th. The 2015-2016 school year is coming to a close, and we would like to take the time to reflect on the amazing progress our students have made. Every child has made strides and achieved goals. Now we will have the opportunity to celebrate their efforts and get to know more about our school community! On May 12th, families and students are welcomed back into classrooms to look at student-selected works from various subjects across the school year. Your child will be your guide! Parents and guardians are still welcome even if your child cannot make it. 

★ 5:15pm - 6:15pm 

★ Your classroom will be open for you to drop in on the celebrations of learning and growth. You are welcome to visit your child’s classroom any time during this hour. Please keep your child (children) with you at all times. They will be your guide through this learning journey. 

Looking forward to seeing you May 12th!
