A big "THANK YOU" to all the teachers of these clubs. They put a lot of time and effort into their clubs. The students are so excited to go to clubs on Friday mornings and that would not be the case if the teachers weren't doing such a GREAT JOB!


Thank you Teachers and Helpers!

LEADERSHIP

CLUB LEADER MRS. REED


We are official and ready to be leader representatives for our school. Club members made their Leadership Lanyards so they will be easily identified as they are out and about in the hallways meeting and greeting our students and their parents as they arrive to school in the mornings. We decided as a club to provide a project, which we will make, to be auctioned off for our upcoming event “Breakfast with Santa.” Santa is already starting to make his appearance. If you look real close you will see him in our group picture!
