A Message for Ms. Wesson

Hello Seahawks,

Our final Seahawk Assembly is this Thursday at 1:45. The life skills are patience and effort.

I will not be hanging up these final awards since Open House is the day before and the end of the year is quickly approaching. I will take down the current awards after Open House.

Make sure to send out your parent letters and get your awards from the box.
