Another great week has come and gone! We were busy this week with more PBL presentations from 4th grade and K5. Then our Artist in Residence came and our students were able to map out Sammy the Shark. There were over 500 students and over 60 staff members inside of the student made Sammy to display that each and every person that makes up our school family is so important. It was such a powerful feeling and emotional reveal! I hope each of our Sharks knows how special they are to our school!

Finally, we celebrated our Veterans and had a special lunch with those family members that have served our country! Thank you to all who came! We are so thankful for you!

Next week we have 5 days before our Thanksgiving Break. We plan to make those 5 days count so we can't wait to see you!
Committed to Success,

Veteran's Day Lunch with our own!

A big thank you again to all of the Veterans that have served our country. We are so blessed to learn from you and your service. Our students were also very proud to eat in a special location and show off the work they have done to understand the meeting of the special day.
