Thank You

Ms. Monterosso thank you for coordinating the SBA testing. It was a success!

Ms. Mary-George thanks for pursuing a partnership with our local library. We have received many new books.

Danielle and team, thanks for being great ROCK STARS! Your program is amazing.

Lida, Delia, Ceci and Karen you are amazing!


With great sadness I need to inform you that Katie Welch our Boys and Girls Club's Director will not be returning next school year. She has been offered the opportunity to work from home, and have the evening time with her son. I am personally going to miss her professionalism, dedication, and most importantly the love she has for our students. Best of LUCK!


We will not be meeting this week. Please submit a copy of your data.
