Exhibition of Learning
Due to the impact of winter weather in February and early March, we have decided to move this year's Exhibition of Learning to Friday, April 10. The new date will afford students and faculty more time to prepare for a meaningful exhibition. April 10th will be a full school day. The approximate timeframe for exhibition will be from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM, but we will share more details including more specific times in coming days.
