O. Henry E-News: Week of Dec. 15

Our first semester ends this week. Thank you for your continued support of our teachers and staff. We are extremely grateful to guide and nurture your children each day. Have a safe, restful winter holiday!

The last day of the first semester is this Thursday, Dec. 18. Students may wear Santa hats. It’s totally optional. Please keep the holiday candy at home.

Unlike prior years, the second semester will begin on a Monday (Jan. 5, 2015). At 8:05 a.m., the students will head to their ACES classes to receive their second semester schedules.

If you haven’t done so yet, please take a few minutes to complete our mid-year survey. Thanks so much!​
