💡 Schoolwide Theme: Illuminate

This year we have selected the theme "illuminate" which will light up our 2021-22 school year with optimism and a bright outlook. With this theme, we will continue to shine a spotlight on our students' successes, cast a light on topics in our classrooms to gain new perspectives, dig deep to enlighten ourselves, and brighten the world around us. You will see this theme throughout the school year and at our Back To School Open House on August 10th as we "light up the path" to a new school year and showcase the ways we will shine brighter together. We are excited to fuel the sparks of lifelong learning in all our students, and identify ways to ignite our students' passions, creativity, and energy for the new school year!
