Spring NWEA Sign Up

It's that time to start scheduling the final round of NWEA Math and Accelerated Reader Testing for the 2023-2024 school year.
Please read the description on the Sign Up Genius- we want the kids to take their time and not rush through.

2023-2024 Field Trips

We are so excited to offer a new round of field trips. Please pay attention to age restrictions. All field trips meet at the location and parents drive/carpool with their children. An Arete teacher will meet you there. Please watch dates closely and make note of the field trips that require prepayment for adult chaperones.
