Such an abundance of appreciation...

Our District, families and students were so giving this past week with good things to eat and other tokens of appreciation. Our PTO Board was especially generous with their time and creative energy in aligning this week of recognition with our "Keys to a Caring School" theme. When you have a moment, please jot a quick note of thanks for them... their next (and last) PTO 2.0 meeting is on Tuesday, May 24th. (Robyn and Kim will be our staff representatives.)

Weekly PD Opportunity- Mistakes are an opportunity to improve!

Appreciation should continue for more than one week! :)

BRAVO to our District's SYB! Many thanks to our student musicians and Brad for a great concert!
