    Dear Dragon Community,

    By now, your child may have had a few exams or have submitted projects.  Please be sure to monitor their time management between school and their activities.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher. At our Back to School Night on September 25th, you will have a chance to meet your child's teachers and learn about class expectations.  We will send more detailed information next week.


    Make it a great week!
