We would like to welcome parents who are new to the school this year! The mission of the Welcome Committee is to help new families become familiar with the school, as well as the area communities.

Please join us at the first orientation program for new families scheduled on November 2, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm at the multi-purpose room. During the orientation, we will go over some school policies and general information that are detailed in the welcome packet along with question and answer session. You will also have a chance to meet other new families coming to school this year.

For those of you who are unable to attend the orientation, feel free to write to us at We have many bilingual Ambassadors who would love to help you with any questions related to school.
Have a fantastic year!
