March 15, 2017 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday evening for the Talent Show, Spaghetti Dinner and Auction. This will be an evening to remember! The auction baskets are shaping up nicely and promise to be very enticing. This Thursday is also the last day of the 3rd quarter marking period. Nine exciting weeks of school remain! It is common to start getting the feeling that the end of the school year is upon us, but keep in mind that we are still looking at 25% of the year and there is much that can be accomplished in this time.

There will be no school this Friday for students, as teachers have a Duty Day for report card preparation. Report cards will be sent home on March 22.

Best regards,

Mrs. Riti and Mrs. Barrow
