2nd Semester

The 2020-21 school year is halfway complete!   As we begin the 2nd Semester next week, and with the possible return to face to face learning, it is important to remember that attendance and student engagement while attending class is very important.  Thank you for your support!

Please feel free to reach out to me or your child’s teacher if there is any support we can provide.
