A BIG THANK YOU!

Thank you to the McAuliffe PTC, Papa Murphy's, Emily's Bakery, and Culvers for donating prizes for Turkey Bingo. It was a great way to end our day before Thanksgiving break.

CRITTERS & COMPANY

In November, the students saw "Teasing: Harassment in Disguise" Presented by Critters & Company. They used a unique medium of live animals and their stories to share with the children relationship building concepts. Animals included an African gray parrot, iguana, chicken, opossum, red tail hawk, and hedgehogs.
