School Calendar for 2017-2018 School Year

The calendar for the 2017-2018 is available at this link: District Calendar 2017-2018

An important change you will notice on this calendar is that every Wednesday will be early release for students. Dismissal time will be 2:00.

The purpose for the early release time is to give teachers and staff an opportunity to take part in professional development, without having to be out of the classroom. Research indicates that this professional learning focused on effective teaching for learning has a bigger impact than almost any other strategy. The effect of "collective teacher efficacy" can be a powerful thing.

Other important dates to note:
1st day of school - August 15
Last day of school - May 24
Parent Teacher Conferences - September 21 & 22, February 15 & 16
Christmas break - December 25 - January 5
