Hello Falcon Families,

We hope the upcoming break is a time filled with quality family time. An idea you can do with your student is helping to clean out their backpacks. This year with students carrying backpacks and not utilizing lockers, they have become a little overly full. Please assist your student in cleaning anything out that is not used on a daily basis and help them reorganize. This will help ensure a great beginning for them upon their return after the Thanksgiving break. We continue to encourage students to use their lockers again as there is a growing need to place items not needed during class in their lockers.

Congratulations on the November Students of the Month
