FirstWord - Mark Your Calendars!

We will be celebrating our "First Word" with sixth graders on January 8. Schedule will follow, but we are anticipating an afternoon gathering. Parents will be invited to attend their child's "First Word" speech (a one minute "rule to live by" and why it is meaningful and enduring to them) that day. You wont want to miss this wonderful opportunity!
