Choose DONALD! Pre-K & Kinder Round-Up

We will be welcoming parents to our halls this week for Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-Up. What a great opportunity to showcase the incredible teaching and learning that happens in classrooms throughout our school! If we bring visitors to your classroom this week, please carry on with what you and your students are doing. YOU have created an awesome learning environment for students! It is time to get the word out.


I am so proud and honored to get to work with you each day. YOU are the DIFFERENCE-MAKERS!
