Back to business this week...

This week started with great PD sessions for our teachers on Monday. They are learning more and more strategies on how to personalize their instruction to the needs and preferences of our students.

Congratulations to our 3rd graders on Thursday! Testing was a huge success!

You might hear your kiddos mention about The Candy Candy Shop, run by our PTO. This "shop" allows an affordable way for students to purchase gifts for their loved ones. This will be offered to those interested during recess time. More information will be coming home next week!

Thank you for your support and happy weekend!

Baby it's cold out there....

Just a friendly reminder that if the temperature is 25 degrees or higher, we will be heading outside. Please dress appropriately! Remind your little ones to put on their coats, gloves, and scarves!

We have had many items pile up in the lost and found. Please check! I saw a lot of coats! If we need to borrow...please have them return.
