The Blue Jay Bulletin
It's a GREAT day to be a Blue Jay!
Message from Principal Johnson
As always there are lots of wonderful things going on here at Atfalati Ridge. If you want to see updates follow us on instagram @atfalati_ridge. Currently your students are completing our yearly art project. Ask them about the masks they are creating with our Artist Ms. Lulu. Coming up we have a Movie Night put on by our Blue Jay Booster, a school wide Feather competition, and the America Heart Association Kids Healthy Heart Challenge. To cap off the month we will have a spirit week as well.
Remember that the No School days coming up are for grading. Teachers will be preparing report cards for your students and you should receive those in the weeks following.
In partnership of education,
