Due to the cancellation of classes on January 30 and 31 because of dangerous wind chill temperatures, the last day for students will now be on Tuesday, May 28. Please make a note on your calendars!
(Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day, so there will be no classes that day.)
And because we know our school holiday programs can take some logistical work for parents and families to attend, we've set the schedule now, so you can make plans early!
All Little Giants Preschool programs will be on Dec. 14 at the school where classes meet.
Here's the full schedule:
