December 19 New Information
Our last days of the semester are Monday and Tuesday. We have some fun activities planned, including our winter parties! Christmas break will start on Wednesday and students will return to school on January 5. Please take time to enjoy this season with family and friends. We have encouraged our staff to take time with friends and family as well. They will not be available during the break. If you need anything, please reach out to one of us. We will miss the staff, students, and families, but we look forward to seeing everyone on January 5th. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What are some ways we use our rewards money for Top achievement in the state? We used the money we received last year to help furnish our Fab Lab in the library! Our students will love the new look and collaborative workspaces to complete STEM and literacy based projects.
Check out the before and after pictures. Thank you L&M Office Furniture for helping us with this design!
