Thank you to all the families who attended the FOR/HA Welcome Back Picnic!  The picnic took place at South Weddington Park, and several families came from all grades to meet and mingle.

So  nice to see old and new faces!

6th grade families, you are off to a exciting start this year with PaliCamp happening Oct. 24-26!  We know this will be an incredible time of bonding and learning for our students. Your child received a "Letter of Intent" for camp on the 1st day of school. Please make sure your child has turned their form in!  Questions regarding the Pali Camp trip should be directed to your 6th grade teachers. The cost per child is $350.
