EARLY DISMISSAL ON WEDNESDAY – We want to remind our parents and students that this Wednesday is the first professional development day for teachers this school year. On this Wednesday (as with every last Wednesday of each month) the students will be dismissed at 11:45 so our teachers can work on trainings and curriculum work.
