Thank You!

Thank you to all our dedicated chaperones who joined us for our field trip to Shipwreck Island. Because of you, the students were able to enjoy a wonderful fun-filled day in the water and sun. Our students made us very proud with their excellent behavior.

I also want to thank all the parents that helped to make our Spring Carnival a wonderful success. You all went above and beyond to help set-up, manage, and clean-up this important school event. A special thanks to our Room Moms, Renee Johns and Marcy Brock, for organizing our basket and booth. I am very grateful!
