HEADS' LETTER: Nov. 7, 2019

Download for Original Heads' Letter

FRIDAY, NOV. 8, 2019 IS A SCHOOL-FREE DAY FOR STUDENTS

On Friday, Nov. 8, our entire faculty will attend the Florida Council of Independent School's Annual Convention (FCIS) in Orlando.

MONDAY, NOV. 11, 2019, is a SCHOOL HOLIDAY to HONOR NATIONAL VETERANS DAY!

At every Monday Morning Meeting we take time to recognize the blessings of living in a free country regardless of our race, religion, ethnic background, gender, and/or country of origin. Our veterans and current U.S. servicemen and women have helped to ensure the freedom we enjoy in the United States of America today. This is also a good time for family discussion. And it is a perfect time to thank a veteran, someone in the military, and/or civil service for ensuring the freedom we enjoy in our great nation.
