Parent-Teacher Conferences
A big thank you to the parents who were able to attend Parent-Teacher Conferences again this year! It was good to have you here. We appreciate your effort in making this school term a success.

Re-enrollment
We are now accepting re-enrollment applications for the upcoming 2018-2019 school term. The forms are enclosed and should be completed and returned to the office by February 16.
