Happy New Year from the PTA!

It is amazing that half the school year is already over! Our principal, Mrs. Strong, has settled in and is doing a great job leading our students and faculty.   We hope you have been able to meet her personally. As our school prepares for the renovation that will start later this year, we wanted to update you on all the events the PTA is preparing for the second half of the school year.
