I hope everyone had a great time this week during Teacher Appreciation Week! Our teachers do such a great job everyday and I am so thankful that we get a whole week devoted to them!

As we round out the school year, please work to make sure your student is staying up to date on his/her work and assignments. Again, please reach out to your child's teacher if you need help or are having problems accessing what you need.

Have a great weekend!
