Weekly eNews: ´╗┐August 24, 2017

Dear Parents,


Even though it is later than usual, it is nice to get back in the swing of the school year. Having the students and teachers back brings the building to life--it's a nice feeling.


The start to this 2017-2018 academic year is special, being that our middle school students have a new building to call home. Yesterday was an exciting time for the students to explore the new space and participate in its dedication and blessing. Please enjoy the attached video tour of the new area.

We are off to a great start and I hope to see many of you at the back-to-school nights next week.
