WEEK AT A GLANCE
NEWS YOU CAN USE
MAY FÊTE UPDATE: Friday, May 3rd at 11:00 am
Our May Fête celebration is scheduled for Friday, May 3rd. Please plan to join us on the Garth at 11:00 am. Water will be provided by our PTO. Plan to arrive early for the best parking and seating options. This performance traditionally packs the space with standing room only. For this reason, if you plan to arrive early and save seats/space, someone must remain with the seats you are saving at all times. Un-manned spaces are considered open even if there is a purse or blanket in the space unless at least one person is sitting with the blanket/purse/etc.
Friday, May 3rd is an early dismissal day, there will not be carpool, lunch, or extended day. Students need to be picked up from their classrooms at 12:00 noon.
