A Message from Mrs. Zagala
I hope that this week's bulletin finds you and your family well. This week we ended our first nine weeks of instruction. Report cards will be sent home on Friday, October 22nd to all students in PK-5th grade. During this next nine weeks your child's teacher will be setting up a conference for each student. I encourage you take the opportunity to meet with your child's teacher to learn about his or her current progress.
I would also like to thank all of your for supporting our PTA by selling World's Finest Chocolate. To be eligible for prizes the money was due on Friday, October 15th. However, if you have not had the chance to turn in your money yet please send it to the school on Monday, October 18th. We look forward to announcing our total money raised and the winners of our prizes!
Thank you for all that you do and we look forward to another amazing week!
