If you are like me, the end of the school year snuck up on us! Wow, I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by. In preparing for the end of the year, we are still missing library books from about 80 students and have cafeteria balances as well. Please take a moment to help us clear up these loose ends before summer break starts.
All cafeteria balances will be carried over to the next school year. Report cards are held until all library books are returned or the balance is paid.
Thank you for working with us to clear up any balances!
