Principal's Weekly Newsletter

What's the scoop? From Dr. Hitchens

Classroom Highlights

This week I would like to Highlight Mrs. Pottle's 4th and 5th grade class. These students have completed their second community punch card. They are working together as a community by showing up to school on time daily, being in proper dress uniform, completing and returning assignments in regularly, and modeling positive behavior for our younger students. Kudos to Mrs. Pottle's Class.

The second group of scholars I would like to highlight this week are our PreKindergarteners. You all have done an amazing job learning to be a community. You are beginning to write your names. You are practicing kindness and friendship with each other. You are eager to be here everyday.
