General Information

Achievement Testing

Achievement Testing is finished,

The students have worked so hard.

At the end of the school year,

The results will be included with your child’s report card.

Summer Mailing

Our goal is to have information available to you as soon as you will need it. For this reason, we plan to make some changes regarding our Summer Mailing. The final school calendar, lower school supply list, upper school schedules, lower school class assignments, textbook lists, locker assignments and the Summer Preview will all be made available, but not in one mailing at the beginning of July like in the past. Instead, lists like textbook lists and school supply lists will be made available earlier in the summer so that parents may begin shopping. Lower school class assignments will be made available toward the end of the summer when upper school locker assignments are available. Information will be posted on ParentsWeb under Resource Documents whenever it is available. As always, contact the school office with any questions.
