Born to Fly – 2022-23 School Theme
Tuesday, March 21, 2023
Welcome to the March equinox week! Fun fact, the equinox officially began at the end of school yesterday. This occurs when the sun crosses the equator going south to north and it only happens twice a year in March and again in September. So fun.
Please make note of the following:
Don’t forget to buy your yearbook, we have sold-out the past two years in a row. They are $65 right now but the price goes up to $85 on March 31st. You can purchase them on my school fees or at the finance office window

We will have a modified schedule each day of the week. Testing will take place in the classroom with the core subject teacher so we can minimize disruptions for those not testing. Please remind your kids about the test and stress its importance of it. Upper-classmen in mixed-grade level classes will not test and choose to stay home or can study in the cafeteria.
Please contact your child’s administrator if you have any questions or concerns regarding the testing.
