March 2018 newsletter
It’s hard to believe that February is over and spring vacation is just around the corner. The last day before spring break is Friday, March 16 and classes will resume on Tuesday, April 3. We wish you all a relaxing break with your children and hope for good weather after the break as we head in to cross country running season.
Of note this month was the launch of our new website. The entire district has adopted a similar format to provide a more user-friendly online experience for parents. Monthly newsletters will be in the principal’s blog for your reference and the school calendar will be kept up to date on the website. We welcome your feedback as we further develop the site.
Please check out the newsletters section of our website for past newsletters or click on the link above for this month’s newsletter.
