Bear Notes-Wk24 Feb. 16th - 19th

Serving kids. Growing scholars.

Note from the principal...


I hope everyone enjoyed their well-deserved extra day off. The weather was absolutely beautiful and hopefully you were able to get out and enjoy it! This week we will continue with our final 6-Weeks Grade Level planning sessions for this school year. And next week we will resume with the Administrative PLC's, as well as send home our 4th 6-Weeks report cards and hopefully finish up all remaining Extended Observations.

As always there is lots going. But what should we expect, it's urban education, in the 21st century! :-)

Have an awesome week!
