We had a wonderful Open House last week with many families in attendance! I heard many positive comments about our school community. I am very excited that our Mascot now has a name: Timber B. Wolf! This week we gear up for our first five day week! Let's have a wonderful week.
I had the pleasure of attending the RIDE Technology Innovation conference this past Saturday!
