Big THANKS to each of you and your classes for your patience in walking around the voting section on Tuesday. It really helped tremendously and kept our little stars safe!

As always, many appreciations to our SLT for your invaluable input and feedback during our time together! Another awesome Veteran's Day program! Another GINORMOUS THANK YOU to our Veteran's Day Social Committee for all of your hard work and effort that went into planning yet another memorable event!
