Project Assessment Day / Assignment assistance day~ January 10

Please be aware that the day after January’s Celebration of Learning there will be no regular classes. The school will be open, but it will not be mandatory for students to attend.

Note: Some homes will be contacted to confirm their student will be at school for assistance with their assignment(s)

What will be going on that day? 

Buses will be running, so students are welcome to come and connect with a teacher for extra help, see other projects, and work independently or in small groups on things that they might have coming up. Some classes might even have optional work sessions. And for parents, it will be another chance for you to come by the school during the day to see what your child has done, especially if you can’t make it to the Celebration of Learning on January 9th.
