Welcome to Week 26!

We have a short week ahead. There is no school on Monday, February 19 in observance of Presidents Day. Only 13 school days left prior to the Spring Break!!!

If your child brought home a Possible Retention letter with their Progress Report, please sign it and return to your child’s teacher.

Please continue to encourage students to read every day - there is still time to meet their Accelerated Reader goals for this grading period!
