Our School Rocks!
Inspiring a love of learning in a safe and collaborative environment!
December 3, 2022
We have officially entered the month of December! Thanks to everyone who came out for our "Celebrate Winter" PTA Family Engagement Night! We had fun making crafts and watching the puppet show! Thanks to all the families who volunteered their time to make this event a success.
This next week, we have our K fieldtrip and our K musical. Please check Friday folders for the times that students need to be at school on Tuesday (December 6th).
We have started our Winter Benchmark Assessments. Students will be assessed over academic and behavior/ social emotional learning progress. If you have a second or third grade student please fill out our opt-in or opt- out form: https://forms.gle/eUUA2zXBHidZSo6q9
We are looking forward to a wonderful week!
