After School Enrichment Classes: Our Fall after school enrichment classes are ending the week of Nov 18-22. Winter classes will begin in January and you will need to sign up online if you're interested. After school Spanish and Guitar will still be available however Chess will be replaced with a different class. Please, see the school newsletter before Thanksgiving break on information on upcoming courses and the link to sign up.
Early Pick-Up: This is a friendly reminder that school ends at 3:20pm Monday-Thursday and 2:00pm on Fridays. The end of the school day is important as it is when teachers give important reminders about the next school day as well as it disrupts the end of the school day schedule. If you need to pick-up early please bring a physician's note to the office so any missed class time will be excused. As much as possible, please schedule student appointments after school hours.
