A NOTE FROM MS. NANCY/MS. DEBI

We hope everybody had a great Winter break and the students come back rested and ready to learn. The school year is flying by so fast. We would like to thank everybody for your support and prompt attention on registering for the upcoming school year. If you have not done so thus far, you have until February 28th before we open up our slots to the public. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Ms. Abbey.

The Primary class will have their Geography Bee on March 20th at 6:15 p.m. Each student who is in the full day class and/or Kindergarten, was sent home a copy of the states broken down by colors. Your help is greatly appreciated and needed for your child to either learn all fifty states or the orange, green and pink states.
