Bulldog Breakdown 10/9 - 10/15

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that everybody is doing well and enjoying a fantastic weekend! 

There is a variety of information in the Breakdown this week, so please be sure to take some time and check it out. There is a lot on school pictures and yearbooks that may impact your students. Additionally, please remember that PSAT is Wednesday, 10/12, and that this is an early release (more info below). If your student is a 9th or 12th grader not taking the test, please keep them home for the day. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8. Please remember that if you do not include your information on the form, I will not be able to follow-up. 

I wish your family a great week! Go Bulldogs!

Tony DiBari 

Proud Principal
