1000 Unique Views!

This week, we achieved an incredible 1000 unique views for this great photo of 8th-Graders having their graduation photograph taken. All credit must go to teacher Liam Millett who captured this great moment. We thought it worth sharing again given its apparent popularity!

Reminder: Please Return All Library Books

Message from the school librarian: Many of the books that were checked out by your children last year–before the lockdown–have NOT been returned. I would like to have them returned and shelved before the end of the school year. Could you please check your bookshelves, nightstands, car trunks, school bags, etc, and return all items marked with the school address and bearing a barcode sticker that looks like the SDFAS one below.
