We are working hard in class preparing for Open House. The children are so excited about the projects they are working on and can’t wait to show you. It is calendared for this Tuesday, March 13th, at 7:00 p.m. It is a minimum day and school will be dismissed at 12:00 p.m. There is daycare available.
Please make plans to visit your child’s class and see some of the work and projects they’ve been doing throughout the year. You may also visit other classrooms and talk to our wonderful teachers and staff. Just a reminder that this day is a Minimum Day. School will be dismissed at 12 PM, daycare is available. This is a good opportunity to invite family, friends, neighbors, and people from your church to see what God is doing at our school.

Thank you so much for sending in dishes for our International Luncheon. We had a great time listening to the guest speaker and eating lots of different foods from different cultures. The gym was all decorated and many children dressed in their heritage, so it made it very festive.
