The Weekly Eagle

The week of November 16th

Last Week before Thanksgiving Break!

Time flies when you are having fun. As we enter into the 3rd 6 weeks, the mighty Eagles have been flying high! Currently, there are no teacher vacancies, student referrals are down from last year and there is a spirit of excellence in the air! The student body has really been doing an impressive job of taking responsibility of their learning by passionately engaging in classroom activities, being more present at school and supporting their fellow classmates. The future seems bright as we enter into the end of the 1st semester.
