Mr. Blake and Ms. Osthoff would like to thank all of the parents that  have signed up to help out with Run With The Knights this year please know you are awesome and we appreciate it!  We still have some slots to fill with gift cards and more importantly Race Marshall's for each grade level.  We are short people for all three grade levels and would like to make sure all of the slots get filled so that our students will be safe when they are on the course running their race.  Each grade level race is done during their Exploratory class time.  The date of this years event is Tuesday May 23.

Again thank your for all of your support we can not put this special event on for our students without all of the help.  Here is the link for the sign up genius for those of you who can help us out.  Please contact Mr. Blake or Ms. Osthoff if you have any questions.

CMAS testing schedule will be out soon. We will begin testing in April after spring break.

Have a great weekend.
