We Sparkle!

Our custodians have done an outstanding job getting our school in tip-top shape! Administrators from across the district were here the past two days for our opening session. Most commented on the cleanliness and beauty of our building. The funny thing is that they were not even in areas where the summer cleaning was completed!

It would be helpful if all those with chairs and tables put some type of barrier between the chair leg and the floor (tennis balls, felt, etc). This saves that beautiful shine Monica and her team have worked so hard to achieve throughout the building.
