Kimberly's Message

Welcome to Week 6. Open House was a success! Parents and students were happy entering and leaving the building yesterday and it was because of YOU! As I walked the hallways, I saw packed classrooms and parents eager to listen to what was being said. They really appreciate you and what you do even when you think they do. Great job and enjoy your weekend!
