We Are... Wildcats!

A Message From the Principal

There is a lot to be grateful for in the month of November. This includes every one of our Wildcat families. We know that going full-remote wasn't the first choice for many of us but the support and appreciation from our families have made this transition very smooth. As I popped into Zooms this past week to see our students working, I noticed so many independent and prepared kiddos. In these classrooms, there is so much learning and fun happening. Many of our students are really navigating remote learning with very little assistance. A lot of this is possible due to our collective partnership up to this point. Our teachers have done so much in the classrooms and on Wednesdays to help prepare kids, but so many of you have created great learning environments and high expectations for remote learning as well. I have no doubt that our students will continue to grow and be ready to hit the ground running when we come back to learning in-person because of our team effort during this time. We are truly grateful and appreciate all of our Wildcat families!


I hope all of you have the happiest of Thanksgivings! I hope during this four-day break that you eat a lot of great food, share your gratitudes, relax, and thoroughly enjoy this time!!


Sincerely,

Mr. Bezeau

Author Visit

This past week we were lucky to have author, Ellen Potter, visit our Wildcats. Ellen was really amazing to listen to as she shared about how she became a writer, what inspired her to write certain books, how she goes through the writing process, and more! When she was done sharing, she took questions from about 15 of our Wildcat students. Our students really enjoyed hearing from Ellen through a back-and-forth dialogue. We are excited to order her books for our school library to share with our students going forward. I want to send a huge THANK YOU to our librarian, Kelly Hughes, for setting up this experience for our students. We are so grateful for all you do for the school!
