Bee in the Know

Week of May 1, 2022

It’s hard to believe that it’s already May. Spring can be a very stressful time for students. These final weeks will go quickly as we prepare for SOLs, AP tests, and the end of the school year. We urge parents to use ParentVue to monitor their student’s progress as the school year draws to a close. If you have any questions, please contact your student’s teachers and/or counselor. We have come so far over the past year, and we could not have done it without our students, the determination of our staff, and the support from our families. Thank you for all you have done to help ensure our students continue to learn and grow.
