Happy November!

It's hard to believe that we are already into the 2nd quarter of school! 2022-23 is off to a great start! Across the building, students are engaged in meaningful learning experiences. Our Pioneers are making great progress in both academics and their social emotional learning. This past month, we had a fantastic performance of Aladdin Jr at the PAC, and our first ever Campus-Wide Boo Thru. The turn-out for both was phenomenal! We loved seeing so many students and families supporting these events. November brings a whole new slate of activities. Make sure to review the Important October Dates so you can keep up with the next month's events. As always, please reach out if you need anything! Your support is appreciated:)
