Veteran's Day 2022

Thank you so much to the PTO, our students, and families for a great Veteran's Day program. I am so proud of our students for being so respectful and showcasing their talents. It was so great to have the opportunity to honor those that have served for our country. What an honor and a blessing Friday was to be able to serve and celebrate our veterans.
