2015/2016 School Calendar
In 2015-2016 we will be keeping our model of early release Fridays for our educators to do their PLC (Professional Learning Community) work. It has been successful and helped to improve our student learning. Each Friday staff gather to review student performance, plan for common lessons and assessments, and provide for the learning of every child so that no one falls behind and those who are advanced get the support they need.
