Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a great week. The students did a nice job on MAP Testing this week. The MAP testing system did go down for some classes and those classes either didn’t get to test or didn’t finish testing. Those classes are scheduled to do make-up testing.

Just a reminder that we do not have school on Monday, January 17, 2022.


The enrollment period has begun and will conclude on February 25. All enrollment packets must be completed before the enrollment end date.

Our students have done an amazing job so far on our Reading Challenge. From September  – December, our students have read a total of 623,803 pages. Great job students and keep on reading!
