Principal’s Update & Important Dates

As we approach the end of February, we’re getting excited for the upcoming spring season. Part of this season includes state assessments which is an opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge and growth while in LaunchED. We will be sending out more information to families soon about these upcoming assessments. Let’s make the most of this chance to shine!

Next week, LaunchED will be featured at the SVVSD Board of Education meeting where we’ll share student stories and recognize the incredible impact our teachers and staff have on our school community. Thank you for your continued support–we will send you a link to watch live!

Wishing you a wonderful end to February filled with learning and growth!
