From the Principal

This week we have busy with a field trip to Tolles for our 4th grade students and today we had a day of fun all about Kindness. Students were in groups with each grade level and they traveled to different stations to make bags of treats for our local police and fire departments, kindness bookmarks and frisbees, placemats for a local nursing home, kindness rocks for in front of our school, and a kindness mural. It was a fun-filled day! I have posted some pictures below.


Next week there is no school due to Spring Break. I hope you enjoy a week of relaxation and fun. At the bottom of the newsletter, I have added some school events and the dates for your planning purposes.


Have a great weekend and Spring Break!
