Happy Belated Thanksgiving
We hope that everyone found some time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate this past week. The next few weeks will feel like a whirlwind, remember to take things one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time. We are here to support you in any way that we can! We are thankful for each one of you! E&J
You're Awesome Because....
Thank you to Katie Bagg, Jill Helmann, Tammy Carlson, Cathy Privett, our administrators, and everyone else involved for putting together such a touching ceremony for Veteran's Day!
