Solar Eclipse – We have been in contact with our school districts and bus companies regarding this event happening on April 8th. After counseling with them and others, the administration believes that it is for the students’ safety and best interest to be home and off the roads before the eclipse begins on that day. However, we do want to make sure we are getting the most out of the school day (as well as an opportunity to teach about this rare event). To accomplish this, we are going to have a two-hour early dismissal at 12:45pm. Students will be given ISO certified viewing glasses before going home that day.

Enrollment – Enrollment is open for the 2024-25 school year. You can take advantage of waiving the $50 re-enrollment fee per student from now until May 10th (senior graduation). There is an option on the form for the early registration cost of $0. You can click HERE to be taken to that page. The online application for financial aid is also available there. Those with our church app can also find the application link in our registration page.

School pictures – Miss Carolyn has graciously offered to do school picture retakes on Monday and Tuesday, April 8th and 9th. If you need to retake or missed the first session, please be prepared to have your pictures taken those days. She will also be taking PEP Club pictures that Tuesday – those students should have their PEP Club t-shirt or wear blue/gray that day.

Popcorn and Movie – Several students signed up for popcorn and a movie through the merit store. We are planning this to happen the afternoon of Tuesday, April 16th. The younger students will be watching Big Hero 6 or Encanto while the older students will be watching The Greatest Showman or Jungle Cruise.

Fine Arts Night – Friday, April 26th is the scheduled Fine Arts Night. We are excited to see the many talents that our 7th-12th grade students will put on display! We are going to try and do a fund raiser to help students raise additional money for their trip in May, tentatively scheduled for May 28th-30th. We will put together more details in the coming days and send home a flier that you can pass out to friends and family.

Graduations – Just a reminder that Kindergarten Graduation is on May 9th and Senior Graduation is on May 10th.

Academic Release Days – Students who are eligible for Academic Early Release will not have school May 13th through the end of the year. Those students will get a note from their Supervisor the week before.

Awards Celebration – The last day of school is May 23rd, with an 11:30am dismissal. We will have our annual awards celebration at 6:00pm that evening. There are many awards and cash prizes handed out that night and students must be present to receive them.
