Good Morning Mariners!
I'd like to begin by wishing a Happy Hanukkah to all of those who celebrate. Additionally, Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa to all. Just a reminder, we will be closed next week for Holiday Break from Monday, December 26th until Monday, January 2nd. We will re-open on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
This Friday, we will be dismissing early at 11:15am.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday and a Happy New Year!

WINTER PEP RALLY!
This past Friday we celebrated the kick off of our winter season with our annual Winter Pep Rally! It was a great morning of performances by our cheerleaders, dance team, N'Step, and our school rock band, The Grill Cheese Sandwiches! Each of our winter sports teams were introduced as well. It was a great way to end the week.
HOUR OF CODE
Last week, our students had the opportunity to stretch and expand their minds during our annual Hour of Code. All were able to enjoy themselves and work together to solve mathematical problems.
