Happy New Year to all students, parents and families! It is hard to believe we are near the end of the first semester already! This Thursday, January 17th and Friday, January 18th are exam days at Caledonia. Thursday will see block 1 in the morning and block 2 in the afternoon. Friday has block 3 in the morning and block 4 in the afternoon. We have these longer blocks to allow students to write final exams in their classes with ample time.
