The month of November is about being thankful. We are thankful for a school community that supports, encourages, and collaborates with us to promote self-esteem, academic success, and social responsibility with our students. The week started with Halloween festivities, and ends with the kick off of to a long weekend that we hope is enjoyable for all.
Thank you to the families that attended parent teacher conferences. It was well attended and we appreciate your cooperation! The end of the first trimester is quickly approaching. The trimester ends on Tuesday, November 29th. Please encourage your students to continue working hard and finish the trimester strong.
