January Principal’s Message

December 30, 2019



I hope everyone had a great winter break.  It was nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of our daily schedules.  I hope that you were able to rest, relax, and enjoy time with family and friends.  


We are ready to come back to school Explorers!  Are you? Remember that January 3rd is a makeup day for Hurricane Dorian.  We will follow our normal schedule on 1/3/2020. When we come to school in January it will be the beginning of the 3rd quarter.  Please make sure you have reviewed your child’s report card that was sent home on December 20th. If you have not scheduled a conference with your teacher, please reach out on Dojo to schedule a time to review student accomplishments, progress, and needs as we begin the 3rd quarter.
