Happy Friday, Shark Families!

It has been a packed week! We have been busy exploring, learning, and growing! I hope everyone has a great week-end and we can't wait to see you back to school on Monday for our Red Ribbon Week festivities! Ms. Moore, our guidance counselor, has the week full of fun ways to stay away from anything that would harm our bodies. Starting off on Monday is Dream Big-pajama day. Next weekis also a 5 day week full of learning. Please make sure your Sharks are here each day unless they are sick.

Thank you for your partnership as we continue to see our Sharks grow and learn!

Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry
