MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Families,

Spring break is around the corner and our students and families are ready!  Time to step back, reflect, and rest is so important.  As we approach spring break, please join us in praying for five days of meaningful reflection and rest for our students: that they are all able to spend time with God, with family, with nature, and with a good book the first week of April!

Please note that we will be busy working and moving forward with curriculum and important learning through Friday!

In the Light of Christ,

Mrs. Kristovic
