Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and women in our students' lives! A special thank you to Nancy Pires, Teacher Appreciation Committee Chair, and the entire PTO for the wonderful week they planned.


This month students will be assessed on the NWEA and our 3rd and 4th graders will participate in SBAC. Please make sure that your students are well rested and encourage them to try their best!

Character Word of the Month- Integrity

The character word of the month is Integrity.

"Integrity is doing the right thing even when it’s hard or when no one is looking. Many people only do what they are supposed to because they know that an authority figure is watching. If someone is watching them, then they do what they are supposed to only because they don’t want to get in trouble. That’s not sincere. It’s not in their heart to be honest because they are doing it out of fear of the consequences. True integrity is abiding by the rules because you know that it’s the right thing to do."
