This information is for the week of May 13th:

There are only 3 ½ weeks (17 days) of school left. Talk to your kids, check Aeries to see their progress.  Finishing the year strong is critical for decisions about their courses next year. If you have concerns, reach out to teachers and don’t wait. Critical decisions about 8th graders and participation with Magic Mountain and the promotion ceremony are quickly approaching in 3 weeks.

Parents – we are going to be hosting our first ever Color Run on May 24 th to raise much need funds for our PE department. Students have been given sponsor forms to raise money for this awesome event. Kids will run the field and get chalked at each corner of the field. All proceeds will support our physical education department.
We want to personally thank AXA, The Ammon family, The Schectman family, Fellowship Monrovia, 38 Degree Ale House and PTSA for sponsoring this event. If you want to come watch your child participate, come to the main office for a visitor’s pass that day at 2:00 p.m. The race will kick off on the Clifton field at 2:20 p.m. and last until 3:00 p.m.
