There are so many more to thank. Please know that your work is appreciated by our entire community!

Next week holds additional chances to connect through Coffee with the Principal and our March PTO meeting.

*Coffee with the Principal will focus on a GE Service Day we have been granted that will occur this August. We are also discussing a review of our before and after school child care programming.

At this meeting, Darren Clark, the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services will join us to present to parents important information connected to the Community Focus Groups. He will also share future plans for the capital improvements in the School District of Waukesha.
