House Celebration

Big picture
We are preparing for our very first House Celebration. At this celebration, all of our students will gather together to celebrate the wonderful things we have accomplished this first six weeks. We are encouraging our students to dress up in the color of their house. (Please keep face paint and hair color limited.) Due to limited space, we ask that parents not attend physically, however, we are planning to stream it live from an active link. We will share this link out soon. This is our first year to implement this program, so please be patient with us as we try to find the best way to incorporate it.

We want our parents to be very involved in this new system. One event we have planning in the works is "Open House" where parents will be invited to one of our House Meetings to see what it is all about. As soon as the details are finalized, we will send you an invitation to this fun event.
