Good afternoon Shark families!

We had a great week celebrating being Drug Free. Next week is a short 4 day week with Nov. 1 being off for students and teachers. I hope everyone has a wonderful week-end and be safe if you are trick or treating for Halloween. We can't wait to see you back on Tuesday!

Committed to Success,
