We are in the second semester of school already. This year has been going very quickly.
Before you know it, our students will be taking the SOLs, Field Day will happen, the 5th graders will have their Moving On Ceremony and then it will be summer.
As always, continue to have your students at school everyday on time and ready for the day. Also, please remember that on delayed school opening days, there is no breakfast served. By the time the students arrive, it is time for the first lunch.
