  • January is School Board Appreciation Month. We would like to write letters to our board members to show our appreciation for all that they do for our school district. If this is something you would like to do next week feel free to do so!
  • Jennifer Givens is working on the baskets for your student families. She will let you know updates on this ASAP.
