Eighth grade students, Logena Bashah and Zain Assaf, took outstanding initiative with the Crisis in Syria donation effort. Both students collected 1,906 QR from family & friends in their compound to add to the school’s donation to benefit the children of Syria.
Our Tardy Policy is designed to ensure students are in class receiving their education. Excessive absence and tardiness to class disrupts the student’s learning. Please review the policy with your child, as we hold each student accountable for their consistent presence in class.
