Happy Winter Break!

We had an exciting week at school! There were projects to complete, presentations and celebrations.

Today we helped load over 4,000 items that were donated by all of you, into our local firetrucks. We achieved way over the amount of our original goal. A huge thank you to all of you for supporting our community! The students were so excited to calculate the totals and were proud of the number that was achieved. Please check out our Facebook page for a video of the experience.

We hope all of you have a safe winter break and we look forward to seeing you all in January!
