Night Before Christmas

Every year teachers perform ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas in a skit for students on the last day of school before winter break. Enjoy the slideshow of pictures below. There were mice stirring, children playing, sugar plum fairies, reindeer and even Santa!

Back to School Night

Thank you so much for coming out Thursday night for our Middle School Back to School Night! Our teachers were thrilled to share their classroom with you!

A few things to recap…

1. We are all learning together.

2. You are the most influential person in your child’s life. Be his/her biggest fan.

3. Provide guidelines for your child at home. Listen to your child. Also, know the school guidelines in the handbook.

4. Check out the MS / HS Library Blog for information about print magazines, search for a new book, or use one of the databases that the school subscribes to. A great resource for you and your child!
