Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation week will be celebrated on campus this week. We are so blessed to work in a building of wonderful elective teachers and support staff. Please encourage students to thank them for the work they do!

25 Book Challenge

Our STEMies have done an amazing job this year keeping up with the 25 Book Challenge District Wide Challenge. Students were asked to read and track reading of 25 Books across different genres.


Currently I almost half of our students who have read 10+ books, about half of those have read almost 20books and I have 10 that have completed and read beyond the challenge.

This is incredible to think about when you consider these are self selected books students read on their own time and for enjoyment.


If you see your student reading --congratulate them. For many just reading something not required is an accomplishment. Look for more information coming home on how the district will recognize those students completing the challenge.
