Good afternoon Wildcats,

As we approach the final week of the school year, I wanted to take a moment to provide you with some important updates and information.

First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for your unwavering support throughout this year. Your dedication to your child's education and your partnership with our school community have been invaluable. 

I am pleased to inform you that the last day of classes for this academic year will be on May 30th. On this day, we will be wrapping up any remaining coursework and celebrating the achievements of our students. Please encourage your child to attend all their classes and complete any outstanding assignments. We will be on a minimum day schedule, please see below for the specific schedule for each day.

As we prepare for the next school year, I want to assure you that we are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for your child. Our dedicated team of teachers and staff will be working diligently over the summer to plan and prepare for the upcoming academic year which will also be our 20th Anniversary. If you haven't done so already, please complete the parent survey below. 

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a wonderful summer break. May it be filled with joy, relaxation, and quality time spent together. We look forward to welcoming your student back to school in the fall, refreshed and ready for new challenges and opportunities.

Thank you once again for your continued support and partnership. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any member of our school staff. We are here to assist you in any way we can.
