Friday Staff Flash

The "A" Team

Thanks for all your hard work and effort kicking off a great school year! Hopefully we are all in "school shape" now. Thanks to Nurse Tawnya for keeping us current on student health needs!

Many of you voiced a heart for stronger home connections. We are hosting Parent University, aiming to offer two courses this year - one in the fall and one in the spring. Tentative date for our first course is Tuesday, October 6th. Mark your calendars and more information to come.

***Congrats to Abuela Gatica, Grandma Nancy & Happy Birthday Week to Mrs. Kidd***
