Grit, Purpose, and Hope is the Capturing Kids' Heart theme for April

This Thursday students have the opportunity to dress in Karate Wear to continue promoting perserverance from the movie Karate Kid/Kobra Kai! We are encouraging our Explorers to continue the passion and perseverance to do their best in school!

Safety Reminders

Please make sure to self-screen your family daily to avoid the spread of COVID-19. If your child has any of the Covid Symptoms please contact our school Nurse Ms. Diaz at 361-878-2800 before returning to school each day. Our priority is Safety First for our school community and everyone's support and cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Everyone have a great and safe week!
