Good News 3/16

Byline: From: Mr. Poole, Principal

Dear Parents,

What an interesting winter we are experiencing in northern Virginia this year. Hopefully spring is just around the corner. Our new last day of school is now Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

Just a reminder to please send in utensils with your child’s lunch. We have also seen an increase in containers and juice boxes which students have great difficulty opening. Please help us to facilitate our lunch periods with user friendly lunches.

Please note that our Family STREAM night has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 29, 6:30-8pm.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the Parish/School Auction Gala on Saturday.

Austin Poole, Principal
