Wildcats Roar & Titans Soar

"Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care."

John Maxwell

A Season of Thanksgiving

November has quickly arrived and we are well into a fantastic school year! Our focus at the start of the year was to build meaningful relationships with our students. By establishing these connections, teachers have created environments where students feel supported, cared for and loved. Students who are surrounded by trusting adults are better able to open their hearts and minds to learning. I am grateful for our incredibly dedicated staff.

Last week you had the opportunity to receive an update on your child's progress during parent teacher conferences. If you missed your conference, please don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher. Family and teacher connections are essential aspects of student success.

Finally, we are grateful for the generosity you have shown the staff since the start of the school year with the Back to School lunch, treats in the teacher's room, fundraisers for our schools and overall support. We are very grateful for your partnership and ongoing support!
