This year the annual Parent Survey is found online at Survey Monkey. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com//r/33FDXN6. You can also find the link on the school website, and it was emailed to each family. You may notice that there is a duplicate question for teachers, this allows you to complete that information for each of your children. If you only have one student, just skip over the extra teacher questions. Please complete the survey by Wednesday, April 12th.
There will be NO SCHOOL for all children in grades Preschool through 5th on Thursday, April 13th through Monday, April 17th for Easter Break. School resumes on Tuesday, April 18th.
