Reminders for Final Week of School
Just a few notes to keep in mind for the last two days of school:
 
Tuesday, June 7th is a half-day and a FREE DRESS DAY. Students will be dismissed at early to attend their class' End of Year Party.  If your child is attending the party they MUST have a signed waiver on file with the office. All students must be picked up by noon on Tuesday either to attend the party or to go home.  There is no after school care on Tuesday. The dismissal schedule is as follows:
11:40 Pre-K and K
11:45 Grades 1 and 2
11:50 Grades 3 and 4
11:55 Grade 5
Noon: Grades 6, 7 and 8
 
Wednesday, June 8th is also a partial day and a FULL DRESS UNIFORM DAY. The PAB is hosting coffee and refreshments on the plaza beginning at 8:00AM.  The Moving Up Chapel will begin at 9:30AM.  (The chapel doors will open for seating at 9:00AM.)  The entire school community is invited to join us for this special end of year chapel where 8th grade subject awards are presented, departing family and faculty are celebrated, and the students make their ceremonial 'moving up' to the chapel pew they will occupy for next year.  School will dismiss for the summer at (approximately) 11:00AM.  All students must be picked up by 11:30AM.  There is no after school care on Wednesday.
