Good Afternoon Shark Families!


It was a wonderful week back into the swing of everything from Thanksgiving Break. Thank you for also attending the 3rd Annual Holiday Spectacular! We love seeing our students and their love for literacy and learning in a special way. I hope it was also a special time with family. Next week is a full week as well. We will finish up Reading MAP testing and start Math MAP testing. Please try to have your Sharks here every day unless they are sick. I hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable weekend!

Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry
