Good morning--

Thank you so much for a great first week. It was wonderful having all of you back and spending some time with you at breakfast, in your classrooms, at PD, and at Kickoff.

I appreciate all of your effort and your commitment to making this year a great year for our students. I am extremely excited! Have a great first day of school and please let me know if I can help in any way.


5 Quick Facts

We will start Five Quick Facts next week. For those of you who are new. We have a different staff member each week share 5 quick facts about himself or herself. Then, that staff member chooses another staff member
