I hope that you all had a happy Easter and a wonderful Spring Break. Now it is time to get back to work! Please make sure that your child is well-rested and at school on-time. We still have lots to learn!

Thank you to all the parents who chaperoned our walk to the Nursing Home. The students did a wonderful job helping the residents welcome spring.

A big “thank you” also to the NBH SGA for giving our students a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt. This was such a special treat for the children!
