World Events

Mr. Bruno communicated some resources relative to the ongoing war in Ukraine at the end of the week. Students returning to school may have varying knowledge of the events unfolding on the world stage. If your children are struggling with these recent events, know that our mental health team can be a support system during the school day. Students can reach out to their classroom teachers if they wish to talk with Mrs. Caldwell or Mrs. Knapp. I'm not going to encourage whole class conversations on the topic unless the classroom teacher notices a need for it. The subject may still come up in school, but staff will try to monitor and encourage conversations to occur in a more private setting than the classroom.

If you are already aware of any specific needs for your children you may reach out to:

Principal - Scott Morrison -

Assistant Principal - Alana Roberts -

School Counselor -Teri Caldwell -

School Psychologist - Audra Knapp -
