Thank You Families For Coming to Back to School Night

Thank you, families, for your participation in Back to School Night. We were pleased to see so many of our families come together for the courtyard reception and prayer service in the church.

Are You Looking For a Computer Charger

We appreciate the response to our call for school Chromebook chargers. We received one that isn't ours, possibly to a Surface Pro. Call the school office if you can't find your charger and think you sent in the wrong one. We're holding onto it.

There will be a culminating celebration of each grade's country on Oct. 13 or 14 at the end of Hispanic Heritage Month.
