HAPPY MONDAY!


Good morning---


I hope you had a wonderful three-day weekend and were able to enjoy some high-quality time with family and friends. You certainly deserve a break.


This week we have four days with students. ACT is on Wednesday and we will gear up for another week of testing the next week.


I know this a very busy time of year, and it takes a lot effort by all of us collectively to make sure that everything happens smoothly. Thank you for all that you to make sure that our kids have what they need to succeed.


Have an awesome week!


--Andy

As we wrap up the 16-17 school year, the Attendance Committee wants our staff to know that we will be looking to boost the number of adults in the building who are serving as Attendance Allies by 20 or more personnel next year. Attendance mentoring is a leading strategy in positive intervention and we hope to help this grow to be one of our number one methods to reach kids. Thanks for those who participated this year and please be looking for more details on this when we return. Thank you.
