Week of Nov. 19 - 20 & Nov. 26 - 30
What a wonderful week it was! From our third grade Veteran's Day performance on Monday to four days of celebrating our grandparents and our first graders celebrated the 50th day of school in style! We are grateful for our teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members who bring their love for our school each and every day. We want to wish all of our families a Happy Thanksgiving!
