November 2021

Message from the Principal

In the month of November, we always think about showing gratitude & expressing our thankfulness to others. A few things I am thankful for:

  • Thank you to our partners at the Mammoth Site for putting on a wonderful Fossil Fright Night on Oct 28 for our families and the community.
  • Thank you to all our Veterans and their service to our country. What a wonderful program that was put on by our 3rd-5th grade students on November 11, 2021.
  • Thank you to all our families for taking time out of your busy schedules to attend Parent Teacher Conferences in October. It was delightful to have our families in our building again and seeing what is going on.
  • Thank you to the parent group who was able to help with our Family Friendly Walk-through on October 21. Once I receive that report, I will be sharing it at an upcoming Coffee with the Principal.
  • Thank you to all the parents who continue to take time and answer the many surveys that have gone out this school year. Your input is helping us to make improvements in the years to come with our school.
  • Thank you to our wonderful teachers and students who show up everyday to Work, Learn, Achieve, and Celebrate!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
