Thanks to those parents who have sent in the money for our March 9 trip to Mission San Juan Capistrano.  It's less than one week away now.  If you can't afford to pay the $10 your student will not be excluded - just send a note with them that lets me know that it's too difficult right now.
 
After-school tutoring ended last week.  Thanks to those students who came to tutoring and studied hard for these past two trimesters.
