Happy Friday! It was a wonderful week with many events. We also had many families for our Thanksgiving lunch. It was so nice to see our Sharks with their families. I love our atmosphere and we are so grateful for our students. Next week, we are out of school but we hope everyone has a wonderful break and holiday. We can't wait to see you back on Monday, November, 28th.

Committed to Success,

First Grade Project Based Learning- Balloons over Broadway

First grade completed their annual PBL with the text Balloons over Broadway. Students designed, measured, and created floats similar to Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. We had a school wide parade that allowed students to pull their floats around the school.

Annual Career Day

Thank you to our amazing School Counselor, Ms. Moore, for organizing another successful Career Day! Our students learned so much about careers from our community partners. Thank you so all people involved in making this day a success for our students!
