Classroom Assignments for 2014-2015

This year we will be communicating classroom assignments via US mail.  On Thursday, August 28th we will be sending out classroom assignments with welcome letters from myself and the classroom teachers.  We did this last year as well due to changes in the SPS central communication system.  We look forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 3rd.  School begins at 9:30 this year and ends at 3:40.  Enjoy the rest of your summer!
