First Week of School

We appreciate the efforts of everyone this past week during our first days of school! The patience and understanding demonstrated helped to practice routines and procedures. As we move to the second week of school, students will spend much of their time learning about how they will be learning their various subjects. We look forward to much learning, growing, and achievement in the upcoming weeks and months!
