Principal's Notes and Highlights

Happy Friday!

It would be hard to top how this morning started. The Bicycle Station donated a new bicycle for the quarterly Husky Gram drawing. We take all the Husky Grams that students have won during the first quarter and put them in the drawing. Dane, 4th grade, was the winner! You could tell he was shocked to win, but very appreciative to the Battin family for the new bicycle! Even better were the high-fives and hugs he received from classmates who were just as excited to see him win. We very much appreciate the support of the Bicycle Station and all of our parents and community partners who make these types of events possible!

Whether you are staying close or heading out of town, I hope everyone has a great Fall Break. We look forward to having our students back on Monday, October 17th!

92 Huskies participated in Walk to School Day!
