School Updates

See You at PTC 

Hello FAmilies,

Hope you are enjoying Spring Break!

We look forward to seeing you all for Parent Teacher Conferences on THURSDAY APRIL 11, starting at 1:30 p.m. for Elementary, Middle and FA Collegiate. Click the link for a message from your principal!


We expect every family to talk with your teachers about your scholar's progress. Spanish interpreters can be scheduled – just let us know if they are needed. 

Please complete our Parent Survey before arriving for your conference. We ask you to arrive on time -- and come ready with any questions.

We are so proud of the academic progress our scholars are making this year – recently shared statewide school performance reports from 2022-23 show we are climbing back to the top among all schools statewide.

And I am confident that our work together this year will continue our rise!

We are excited to see you April 11 for Parent Teacher Conferences – and on Saturday April 27 for our FAmily Business Trenton Eat Local event at Royal Cakes & Cafe. 

Thank you for being part of our FAmily! 

In community,

See you soon!


Natasia Cooper
Chief Academic Officer
