Celebrating Every Day...

Parents & Guardians:

Moving on, we are now headed into the second week of February; it's so hard to believe, but true. This week within our school year is always fun because it leads up to February Vacation, and our students will be filled with lots of energy and excitement. As always, there will be many great things happening within our classrooms, and I can't wait to see what the week will bring. Let's get after it...


Wishing everyone a wonderful week.


Go Grizzlies!
