We hope you will join us for our annual Open House on Tuesday, September 6th from 4:30-6:00 p.m.  Class lists will be posted at that time.  Due to the busy nature of the start of school year and the careful consideration that teacher teams have given to student placements, we will not be making any class list changes.  Thank you for your understanding.  

You are welcome to bring supplies and drop them off in your student's new classroom.  Our kitchen staff will be here if you want to deposit money into a lunch account.  

Below is the letter that was sent home to families this week.  If you did not receive a copy, please contact the office to verify your address.  Letters were mailed on Monday, August 22nd.

1.       Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.

2.       Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.
