Don't forget that we will have Career Day on March 8. We are encouraging students and staff to dress up in what they would like for their future career to be. Teachers, you guys can dress up as your alternate profession...what you would be doing instead of teaching. The 6th grade team also has some great plans in store for their kids. Can't wait to see it!
