Visiting Day

Visiting Day for the 2021-2022 school year takes place on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.



Registration for 2022 - 2023

Previously Purpose School has offered a daily lunch bunch option and an extended day option. Due to the pandemic, however, we were forced to eliminate the extended day option this year. If in September we are able to mix groups and have enough student interest we will consider adding back the 1:00 to 2:00 session.
