Dear Parents, 

We hope you enjoyed your long holiday break! We have a short week, due the break! 

Next Friday, the report cards will be going home. We will also have a half day for conferences. These conferences are on a need-to-meet basis. 

There is no school on Monday, January 18th for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

This month your child will have the opportunity to purchase books through the International Scholastic Book Clubs. This is an optional activity offered by the school, in case you want to motivate your child to read at home and to increase their own library. With you purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem for more books for the benefit of you children in our school. The Due date to purchase the books online is January 25. The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date.
