After School

   All After School programs will come to a close on Friday, June 22nd, 2018! 

After School/Saturday Academy

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end!!  This upcoming Saturday, April 28th, 2018, will be the last Saturday class for 2017-2018 school year.  In addition to this, the last week of after school tutoring will be April 30th, 2018.  Please check with your child's teacher regarding the days your child will need to be picked up at 3:45 pm moving forward.  Thank you and have a lovely day.


Math State Examination

This is a reminder that your child will be administered the Mathematics State Exam on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 and Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

 Listed below are a few tips you can follow in order to give your child the best chance at success on the exam.

  • Prepare things the night before. Things to prepare the night before include, sharpened #2 pencils, setting your alarm clocks, and preparing her/his clothes to be worn on test day.
  • Eat a smart healthy breakfast. Even if your child is not a breakfast person, please explain to your child that eating breakfast is essential, especially before a long test.
  • Allow ample time to arrive to school. Nothing is more stressful to a child than to walk in late while the test has already begun. Please ensure that your child is also present on test days especially.

Our students don’t need luck, so I won’t say it! They’ll do amazing!!!
