Braveheart Award for this week goes to..... Mrs. Perez
Thank you Mrs. Perez for everything that you do. She is a hard worker who takes the necessary time to ensure that she provides a positive learning environment for students. She is passionate about preparing our students for the next step. She spends many hours outside of the school day to prepare, research, plan for our students. I appreciate her leadership and collaboration with her team, our staff, and parents as well.
Bravely leading students to see their WONDER.
Thank you Mrs. Perez - we appreciate you! (4th grade ELAR)
