Dear Families,

I want to extend my gratitude for our teachers and all of our staff for their work in creating a positive learning environment for all of our students. We continue to work with our students on social emotional learning in our classrooms so that they all are learning how to use calming strategies in the classroom, as well as how to problem solve appropriately.

Thank you to all of our families who attended parent conferences, we had over 250 families or 70% who met with our teachers. We are very appreciative of your time and teachers were happy to share with parents how their student was doing.

We will be celebrating our trimester awards on Wednesday, Dec.30th in our school cafeteria.

8:30 3rd-5th grade

9:00 TK-2nd

Families will be sent a message if their child is being recognized.
