I will tell you there should be three tired Principals for the Day this evening! What fun it has been as their eyes popped wide open when they discovered some of the tasks we have or take on to make all run smoothly at school! The best was when they saw the lost and found!
Parents, some of you are going to find that your children are bringing home several lost coats. We have these on display in the Wi-Fi. Our goal was to get warm clothing home to you while also finding owners. We still have many jackets and coats so, if your child is missing something, encourage him or her to check lost and found on Tuesday morning.
Next week we will have a very special event! We officially celebrate our 25 Years of Excellence on Thursday evening, 6:00-7:30 p.m. There will be a program at 6:00 followed by student led tours and a reception. We hope you are able to join us!
Please check out the newsletters from our three Principals for the Day!! There are many photos and their classmates were awesome supporters of the new administrative team!
Take a moment to appreciate our holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through his kindness, wisdom, and leadership, our country has grown and continues to grow in respecting each individual and our differences!
Have a wonderful 3-day weekend and we will see our smiling Mustangs on Tuesday!
