Principal’s Message:

Dear Parents,

All are invited to come out to dinner on Tuesday at CPK in Encino.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone as we celebrate the work our students, staff and parents have accomplished this year.  Back in college I served tables at Chili’s and am looking forward to reliving my youth!  Our 5th graders are taking their annual excursion to Pali Camp and they will have lots of stories to share about their adventures when they return on Wednesday.  Have a great week!
