Cougar Weekly Update
February 8, 2019
Having a full week of school with a regular routine has made this a great week! We were happy to celebrate our wonderful counselors who remind us each day that we are loved and important. This week teachers spent time working together to improve student writing and reflected on their own practice in this area. It is great to see students progress in their writing skills. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
