November 12, 2023
It was a short week that ended with an outstanding Talent Show hosted by our Taking Action conservatory students. The performers showed so much confidence and creativity. Fun was had by all, and our students collected a large amount of non-perishable food items for those who have food insecurity this holiday season.
Don't forget this week is parent conference week with dimissal at 12:50 PM every day. Our students and teachers have worked hard to prepare for our fall conferences and can't wait to meet with you. Please make it a priority to attend your child's conference and learn how they are progressing!
Our next Bagels with Benjie is this coming Friday morning at 8:15 AM in the PAC. Please join us for a light breakfast and coffee and learn about our Title 1 program and how we support all of our learners.
