SCHOOL NEWS
Re-Enrollment for 2016-2017
An email was sent out to all parents just a few days ago about re-enrollment for 2016-2017. Everything you need to know about this process is included here. Be sure to go over the cover letter prior to making your decision.

If your child needs bus transportation for the 2016-17 school year, you must turn in the bus contract AND deposit with the re-enrollment form.

Re-enrollment forms and bus contracts are due no later than February 26th. If the re-enrollment form is not turned in OR turned in after the deadline, it will result in your child losing their seat for next year.

To confirm that your child's re-enrollment form has been received, you can send an email to confirmCSP@mycsp.org. This email will be checked weekly and you will receive a reply.

In remembrance of Christa McAuliffe
In 1985, she was selected from more than 11,000 applicants to participate in the NASA Teacher in Space Project and was scheduled to become the first teacher in space. As a member of mission STS-51-L, she was planning to conduct experiments and teach two lessons from Space Shuttle Challenger. On January 28, 1986, the shuttle broke apart 73 seconds after launch. After her death, schools and scholarships were named in her honor, and in 2004 she was posthumously awarded the Congressional Space Medal of Honor.
