Back to School Time 2017-2018!!
We are excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year!! Our theme this year is SOAR!! Every journey begins with that first step. This year we encourage everyone to take that first step towards that journey and then continue the journey to SOAR with excellence!
Here are a few highlights to begin the year and for the first day of school.
