Dear Families,

As we enter the final week of our fall semester, we’re remembering all the fun and learning we’ve shared. It has been a dynamic school year so far with you. Thank you for being a cherished part of our school community!

Beginning December 18, we will pause for our Winter Break. I hope you find many opportunities to rest and enjoy time with your loved ones. January 8 will be a Professional Development day for our team, and we look forward to seeing our learners when our spring semester begins on Tuesday, January 9.

If you have any questions for our team, please don’t hesitate to reach out to or (661) 722-4287. And be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected.

With gratitude,

Nykole Kent
School Director
