Gratitude: Week Number 3

Greetings Buccaneers!


We have so much to be grateful for: family, friends, work, for our health, our students and SOM family, and so much more that it would be impossible for us to list all of the gifts we have.


As we approach Thanksgiving Break, I would like to thank our educators and school staff for their commitment to helping and supporting our amazing students and parents.


I also want to thank Ms. Parreñas for organizing our second Buccaneer Way Day. It was a success! We also thank our ASB students for their contributions and for helping get things ready and packets distributed to our teachers.


We have one week left. We got this!


May this be another stellar week!


Here to serve,


Julissa Gracias
