Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Take a quick moment to give a note of thanks to your child's teacher. Each office has a board up to add wonderful notes of thanks for any faculty members; please help us fill this board with joy.

Our school is made up of so many amazing faculty members, and they appreciate the thanks for all of their amazing efforts with the students throughout the year!
