Astro December Update
Dream big. Reach for the stars. Together we achieve success!
As we finish the last days of 2021, I am grateful for the learning and growing we have done as a community. We have been able to try some new things like the Day of Play. We also were able to bring back some things like Laps for Ladd and a Family Fun event.
As we look forward, we are going to try a few more new ideas. We will be doing a school-wide Day of Art on December 16th. Our 4th through 6th graders have the opportunity to apply for a school job. These jobs will give students the chance to learn new skills and have increased responsibility in our community. The students also earn Shining Stars for their hard work.
We are able to have volunteers at school again! If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the website linked below to complete the steps necessary for volunteering in person.
