What Really Matters?

A note from the principal...

Teachers, thank you again for another great week of teaching and learning. Please remember that we are only finishing up the 10th day of school. With that in mind, routines and procedures still need to be practiced and reinforced. Please continue to make positive phone calls to parents and work on building positive relationships. Consider this article as you reflect on our first full week of school.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Question of the Week: When you're 90 years old, what will matter most to you in the world?


Please be mindful of the outside temperatures and heat indexes for the next several weeks. Please allow students to stay hydrated and drink enough water when they return in the building. Please also make sure you are actively supervising students while at recess. Safety is our top priority!
