We celebrated the 100th day of school this week. Come and see the pictures of our CP students in the hallway. The transformation is astonishing! And what a turnout at Hat Creek! Thanks to all of our families who joined us for this month's Spirit Night. The kids had a blast on the playscape while we enjoyed mingling as a group. Thanks for being part of our community!
