  • Thank you to Mrs. Palais for organizing People's Choice! I also know she did not do it alone and used a very small army of special people to pull off the night. Thank you to all of them and to the staff who continue to amaze me with such kind words for the students. There were tears shed and many hearts made glad at that event! Thank you for an awesome night everyone!

  • PBIS is putting on a closing event for students. It will be almost like an indoor field day but surrounding basketball type activities. There will be many people needed to pull it off.
