Middle School Volunteer Opportunity


Date: Friday, March 9th

Time: 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Location: Carden Campus

Age: 6th - 8th Grade Students

We would love to have as many volunteers to help clean each classroom (i.e. wipe down desks, clean sinks, dust, clean refrigerator and microwave). This opportunity can go towards the volunteer hours that middle school students need to complete for the year.

 Dear Parents,


    I hope this letter finds you all well!  During one of the recent Board meetings this semester, school safety was discussed with the thought of increasing security for next school year. However, in light of the recent tragedy in Florida, we have decided to take measures now to ensure our students’ safety. Starting Tuesday, February 27th the teachers have been asked to keep their doors locked during school hours. Lock down drills will be practiced along with our regularly scheduled fire drills. A lock down drill will be practiced next week.  The school will be looking into additional measures to keep our campus safe. Also, please make sure that you come into the office and sign in before going to your child’s classroom. This helps us know who is on our campus and better monitor campus activity.

   As always, your children’s safety and well-being are paramount. Thank you for your continued support, and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
