Nuts & Bolts

October 22, 2018

Thank you

I hope you are all in the middle of a well-deserved relaxing fall break. Thank you for your time and commitment to our families this week. Three long days of PTC is draining and I appreciate you all maintaining a positive attitude and supporting our families this past week.


Have a great week back!

Cultural Festival

The results are in! An overwhelming majority of those who took the survey chose to have the time of Culture Festival family visits be 1-3pm.


We are changing the date; however, to be on Friday, November 16th. Thank you for your feedback and flexibility. I think that this is a great way to end our week and head into our Thanksgiving week off of school.
