Excellent Performances

A BIG thank you to Ms. Orr and Ms. Patrick for all of the time and effort spent in kicking off the holiday season for us at Mt. Park with the various performances. A job well done!

Clean up, clean up...

Mr. Lyron will provide trashbags to help with clean up after your classroom parties tomorrow. Please help Mr. Lyron and his crew by having your students get the room cleaned and organized before leaving for the holidays. Thanks.

Jamie Foxx may be well known for his comedy. However, the link above demonstrates a softer side of his musical gifts; my son's favorite rendition of this classic song. Enjoy.
