Parents & Guardians:

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is planning to enjoy a little football tonight (that's if you are a football fan). Even is you aren't a football fan, the commercials during the Super Bowl are always fun to watch.

On the recognition front, I want to recognize Mrs. Potter, Mrs. Larsen and all of hard-working members of Mirage for their championship performance this past weekend at Shepherd Hill. The championship was a total team effort and everyone played a part - congratulations to all involved - keep rocking the stage, Mirage!

We all have a very busy week ahead, so let's get right into it. Wishing everyone a wonderful week.

Go Grizzlies!
