A Message from Rick Riley-Benoit

We are already preparing for next year! In the beginning of May we will be asking parents to sign up for bus transportation for the coming year.  This should help us get bus routes done much earlier in the summer!

Parent pick-up and drop-off: Please make sure you pull all the way forward when both dropping off and picking up students in the parent pick-up line. Having 6-7 students loading at the same time speeds up the process for everyone!

For your planning purposes, as of right now, the last day of school for students is June 18. It is an abbreviated day for students.

Student Council Leadership

The Student Council Leadership Team has planned a Spirit week for next week! The Themed Days are as follows:

Monday: Sports Day! Dress like an athlete or wear your favorite team gear!

Tuesday: Beach Day!  NO SWIMWEAR!!

Wednesday: Students dress as Teachers, teachers dress as students!

Thursday: Mismatch/wacky outfit day.

Friday: Red, white and blue day.  Go Patriots!
