We have worked extremely hard this year and have accomplished so much. Our Final Exams are approaching for 7th and 8th graders and each grade level has created a schedule that will meet the needs of your children.

Please remember that final exams/projects count as 20% of your child’s final average. These summative assessments are created to measure the entire year’s worth of information. A project is meant to be cross-curricular and allows for children to apply what they have learned in an authentic manner.

All full days will run from 7:45AM-2:36PM. Our half day morning sessions will run from 7:45AM and we will dismiss at approximately 11:15AM. Our afternoon sessions will run from 11:00AM and we will dismiss at approximately 2:36PM.

An end of year bus schedule will be provided on your child’s PowerSchool account. We will send out a communication when this is available.
