Thank you for attending our Open House and Art Show!

I want to thank all of the parents and students who were able to attend our Open House and Art show last night. It is so wonderful to have such a supportive parent community! Our students have learned so much this year and we are very proud of all that they have accomplished. A big thank you to our Art teacher Mrs. Becan for all of her hard work in preparing for our first Art Show fundraiser, which was a huge success!
