We are engaged in numerous school-wide forms of support and providing opportunities for students to discover their passion in a supportive learning environment. We continue to expand our business partnerships in the community and share best practices for parents at our Fall/Spring Curriculum Parent Night. We believe that it truly takes a village to support our children and their success. We invite all incoming 6th Graders to attend our Saturday Safari's on January 26, February 23, March 16, and April 13 (8:30-9:30 am and 10-11am) to learn about our school, tour campus, select classes, and submit registration paperwork.
