We appreciate you!!!
  • Gena would like to thank the entire staff for all of the wonderful things you have done this week to help each other get through STAAR: Thank you for bringing snacks for the lounge, packing the snacks for the students, words of encouragement for each other, all of the teachers that were testers and small group testers, all of the extra duties in the cafeteria, restroom breaks, and hall monitoring, Frances for getting our lunches ordered and brought in for us, and Talana for making sure everything ran smoothly! You are absolutely the BEST staff EVER! I appreciate you more than you will ever know!

That was a HUGE job, and all of us on the SPARK team appreciate you! Also, thank you to Windy and Rita for organizing and distributing all the Enrichment Club confirmation slips!
  • Ms. Wolff would like to say thank you to my Games Club teammate, Katie Killip, for all her help! We had a small and cozy group, but she made every child feel so special by just talking and getting to know them! Thank you, Katie!
