Message From the Principal:
It’s hard to believe that there are only five weeks left of summer. Children have had a blast during these past 6 weeks. They have explored and learned new things and made many long life friendships…there are still many more experiences ahead that will leave lots of great memories until next summer.
All the preparations and planning for the 2017-2018 school are happening now. We want to ensure that our academic excellence continues thru the year to develop and strengthen your child’s knowledge and skills.
Spaces are limited…hurry!!! Don’t miss the opportunity to have your child in the best school in the area!
