    Dear Dragon Community,

    In the coming months, we are going to see an increase of events happening at our school.  On Wednesday, we have our Back to School Night. I am hoping you all take the time to meet your child's teachers and learn about the classroom expectations and what types of experiences your child will have this year.  I look forward to greeting everyone before the event begins so you can hear what initiatives I would like to see carried out this coming school year. 


    Please read below for more detailed information.
