Start of School Dates for September 2015

School starts next week, and we can't wait for everyone to get here! Bulletin boards are prepped, floors are polished, we've touched up the paint, and the whole campus is abuzz with the excitement of preparing for a new school year. Here's what you'll need to know heading into next week!
