A note of gratitude...
Students will be bringing home 'candy grams' this week so they can write a shout-out to a staff member and what they appreciate about them. Please help us spread a little cheer and write a quick note of gratitude. Then bring the notes back to school by Tuesday, December 12th and the PTO will attach a candy cane for a little extra treat!
