The Titan Times
October 3, 2022
A Message from your Principals
Here we are on the eve of October Break. It has been an amazing 7 weeks of school and we are really hitting our stride. I hope you are feeling settled and familiar with your child's school routines and expectations. Thank you for everything you do to ensure your students are here at school and ready to learn. It makes a difference.
I'd like to take this opportunity to highlight our teachers and staff. They are working hard to create a positive and productive learning environment in their classrooms and around the school. Teams are meeting frequently to ensure we are working together to support our students, build relationships and help our students understand what it means to be Titans. Our staff is outstanding, and I'm not just saying that...
We are thrilled to welcome families to the in-person performance of Celebrate the Beat! Colleen has truly outdone herself again this year. Not many people can corral 45 students at a time and keep them all moving in the right direction and having fun. We know it has also been challenging and the expectations are high, but students are definitely stepping up. We hope to see you all here on Thursday night!
Our Student Leadership Club will be setting out the Lost and Found on tables in the hallway starting today. This is your chance to come in and take a look. It all goes to 6 Points on Friday.
