From the desk of the Vice-Principal:
It is hard to believe that we only have 4 more weeks of school left! The days have just flown by. Please, keep encouraging your child to do his/her homework and to study for the tests and quizzes. I know that its gets harder and harder the closer we get to the end of school, but it is so very important that all of our students keep plugging away at those books and keep studying hard.
Last week we had 2 wonderful program nights! All of our students did a marvelous job praising our Lord! Don't forget that we still have several programs yet to see. Please mark the dates on your calendars.
Have a blessed week!
