Message From the Principal
October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Please join us on October 18th for a School Wide Assembly: No Bullying: “Stand Up — Step In!”- Three-time Parent's Choice Award-winning, David Jack, will take your kids through a multi-media spectacular show which includes music, movement, virtual characters, dance, interactive game shows and a generous helping of fun! The assembly will focus on how to identify the players in a bullying episode and more importantly how students should deal with it.
The assembly begins at 10:00 AM. Parents are welcome to attend. Students are encouraged to wear orange in support of National Bully Awareness that day as well.
