Greetings Wolverine Pack!

August is here and this means that we have a solid 5 more weeks of summer vacation! I hope that your family has some great end of season plans and that your Wolverine is finding time to read! Please take note that the first day of school is Wednesday, September 8, 2021. This week's news includes times for our August events. We are excited to provide a schedule that includes multiple in-person activities. Thank you for your support as we continue to provide as much advanced information as possible!

Until next time,

Mrs. Broudy
