From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

Today we celebrated earning 1000 foxes for being Kind, Respectful Learners! All students were able to enjoy the beautiful weather while reading outside. It was so fun to see everyone enjoying a good book and some gorgeous sunshine! I've shared some pictures of the Read-In throughout the eNews for you to enjoy.

Have a wonderful weekend,
