Dr. Justin Patchin, internationally recognized bullying expert and co-director of The Cyber-Bullying Research Center. This is a great opportunity to hear from the best.


Wish List Fun

The Home and School Committee is encouraging our teachers to post some classroom Wish Items. The items range in price and there is no expectation that all wishes will be granted. But, you are welcome to take a post-it-note from the collection and make a dream come true.

Monday night, wish list items will be posted on the 5th grade classroom door frames, but the 6th-8th grade items will be displayed in the lower hallway near the Cafeteria.

Thanks for all you do for this school. We are grateful.
