Classroom Placement for Next Fall
We understand how anxious families are to know which class their child will be in next year. There are many factors that go into this important decision. Although we have completed some of the work necessary to make student placements, a lot will happen during the summer regarding enrollment. We will notify families about their child’s class assignment toward the end of August. We appreciate your patience.


DreamBox Available Until August 31st
 Students will have access to Dreambox until August 31, 2014.  We encourage you to take advantage of this math enrichment opportunity.  Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions.
