Important Updates

Symphonic Camp: February 9th from, 9 AM – 12PM (Noon)

Please keep our Symphonic Camp on your calendar! It will be a fantastic day and our paid staff that is driving in will spoil our kids rotten with knowledge and fun.

Students should report at 8:45 AM and are allowed to leave at noon if they have other commitments.

I encourage all students to stay if possible past noon so that we can feed them some Chick-Fil-A, chips, and desserts! Students will also have fellowship time with each other and play board games, video games, and sports outside.

Pick up time is 1:00 PM for those who choose to stay.

Carowinds: Next payment of $50 is due January 31st.

Chair Test: We have our next chair test tomorrow! I am excited to hear all students play tomorrow. Those who are sick will play their chair test upon their return.

Braves Game Field Trip: Please read below or print off a PDF if you or your student are interested in attending our Braves Game field trip on April 13th!
