FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL

Welcome back! Happy New Year! With the start of the new year I'm going to begin my Citizen of the Week program again. I've asked the teachers to keep an eye out for students that have performed well, behaved or have been a top notch citizen in the classroom. On Fridays, I will call these citizens to my office to be awarded compliments and a piece of candy.


Have a great weekend!


Mrs. Skornia
