From the Desk of the Prinicpal
Welcome to April! As I was walking through the school
this morning, I spoke to a couple of 8th graders
"studying." They were counting off and doing some
calculations. I asked what they were studying and they
replied, "We are figuring out how many days of school
are left." Summer is on their mind. This year, the race
to the summer will be a bit different. Instead of the
normal Memorial Day(ish) last day of school, this year
the last day is in mid-May! Track and Field is just
kicking off but in one month, we will already be hosting
the 2018 Sports Banquet. Expect the first two weeks of
May to be nonstop.
I hope everyone has had a chance to schedule your
conference with your child's homeroom teacher. I have
had conversations with several parents about the
"overwhelming" amount of data you received. They
were not upset but want more clarity on their scores and
what they meant. If you are in the same boat, set up a
time to meet with me.
The 2018-2019 calendar will be out soon. We
historically wait for the public school to release their
official calendar before we set ours. This year, the
calendar is very late. I do foresee some changes in our
calendar versus the public one, so be prepared.
Enjoy a great (chilly) weekend before we get the
beautiful weather next week!
