From Mrs. Avery

Trimmier family,

October was a busy month, November and December will be just as busy. We have enjoyed this week of Red Ribbon week and the kickoff of United Way. The amount of support you all have given has blown me away. I have enjoyed listening to the students as they are voting for the principal challenge. I just love the giving spirt showcased with our students and our families. Our Tiger Pride is definitely hard to hide. Though we continue to work hard on learning the curriculum, it is nice to have a little fun while we are at it. Thank you all for the continued support.
