January 28, 2015 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

On Tuesday, February 3 at 6:30 PM we will have our next Home & School Meeting. We will be presenting the 2015-16 Operating Budget for your information, along with updates regarding standard and special diplomas in the State of Florida. This is an important meeting for all parents and we encourage you to attend. Free childcare will be available.

This week through Thursday, January 29 we will be conducting the Measures of Academic Progress assessment. Thank you for maximizing your child’s ability to perform well on the tests by ensuring everyone gets a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast. Arriving on time is also more important than ever on test days.

Have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Riti
