Superhero Friday Phone Calls Are BACK!

Calling all Super heros!

Check your box Monday to see if you are the next teacher who has been tapped to find a super hero. Use your x-ray vision to identify one student that has used their superpowers to grow. At recess on Friday, after you have bragged about them in front of their peers, send that student up so we can make a shout out phone call and take their picture!

** If you have a Superhero that just can't wait, let us know so we can recognize those growing powers!
