Here we are, at the last week of April and only 23 days of school left. It's so hard to believe! Even with the challenges of Covid, it has been a great year. We have a fantastic group of Knights!

Announcements from the Office
Please check infinite campus regularly as grades are updated each week.  
If your child is completing late/missing assignments, please tell them to communicate which assignments they are completing to their teacher. This will ensure that the assignments get updated in IC correctly.

Please make sure students bring their Chromebook and charger on their library day. We are updating and auditing.

SMILE Club will meet Wednesday after school in Mrs. Burkhead's room.

Don't forget we have ESS opportunities for students every afternoon except Tuesday from 3:30-4:30.
