A big Thank You goes out to Johnny. If you're new to the school, you'll soon notice that Johnny is often hard at work, maintaining our facilities and ensuring that our school remains clean and sanitized. We are so grateful for all that he does for the SRLA community. Thanks, Johnny!

Grade 4 Update
Our full-time fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Alexander, is currently on short-term medical leave. On Friday, we welcomed our interim fourth grade teacher, Kimberly N. Lonie. Miss Lonie comes to us with a Master of Education degree from Columbia University’s Teacher College. She holds an undergraduate degree in psychology with minors in cognitive science and French, cum laude, from Georgetown.
A big Thank You to Mrs. Lucius who graciously offered to sub for the fourth grade this week. Thank you all for your patience and support during this time - and please give a warm welcome to Miss Lonie!
