Thomas Edison was spot on: "Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.” In light of Edison's wise words, and in a concerted effort to organize our school for success, we have developed a tentative 2019-2020 academic calendar. This calendar was fully approved by the School Leadership Council on April 30, 2019.
