One Team. One Family.

Week Ahead for Feb. 1st - 5th

This past week was a wonderful example of our "One Team, One Family" motto! I wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to reflect on just some of the wonderful things going on this week:


  • We got very creative when both copiers were down at the same time!
  • Colleagues stepped up to sub... a lot!
  • Math teachers created our very first Family Math Event , which rocked!
  • Students planned, introduced, and will continue to take the lead in the Seat Belt Campaign!
  • Ms. Pawlowski started her work at 4th Street. We are so glad that you are here!
  • Our new altar servers served!
  • Mr. Garvey worked tirelessly towards subbing solutions!
  • A seventh grade student was here today despite a major family crisis. When asked why he came to school, he replied, "My parents didn't want me to come to school today. But I love school. I hate missing school."
  • Teachers came together to problem solve on how to teach behavior and how to help students experience more success!
  • Sixth grader Francisco Garibay taught a truly amazing math lesson!
