Parents/Guardians are welcome to join us tomorrow for our Ash Wednesday Celebration in the gym at 9:00 a.m.  Hope to see you there.


The parking lot can be a busy place during drop off and pick up.  Please continue to practice patience and care during drop off and pick up, especially at the top and bottom of the parking lot where it can be a tight squeeze for cars to turn around.  We thank everyone for their cooperation with this.


We are making an effort to ensure that children have a full and balanced school day that allows for full participation in all areas of the curriculum. We appreciate the efforts of parents and students who begin the day on time without disruptions caused by lateness. A child who disrupts a class for two or three minutes because of late arrival means a loss of a whole hour of time when added up for everyone. The teacher has to go over the same instructions again. “Lates” must be noted on record, both upon entry to the school and in the classroom. This takes time for teachers and the secretary in addition to the time lost in the classroom. All students should be at school by 8:30 to line up with their class at the proper door. We understand that some lates are unavoidable in extraordinary circumstances, such as medical appointments or family emergencies. We appreciate your calling to let us know when a child will be late. Please support our efforts in this area. Just a reminder, that when you are signing your child in late, it would be appreciated if you say goodbye to them in the front foyer.


A reminder that Feb. 19th is Family Day so there will be no school on Monday.  Enjoy the extra time together.
