Our First Week in Review
Throughout the week students reconnected with classmates from last year (and met our new friends who have joined us), participated in lessons that the teachers prepared, and learned the schedule/routines that will help them stay on track this school year.
On Friday we kicked off our new HERO program, which promotes positive behavior choices. We are learning about the importance of being Honest, Engaged, Respectful, and Organized.
