Teacher of the Year - Kristal Cheek

Congratulations to Kristal Cheek and Song Moon, PTA Co-Teachers of the Year. They were celebrated last Friday with a surprise visit from members of the PTA. During the ceremony student letters outlining the teacher's impact on the class and school were read by parents and students alike. It was a well-deserved and heart-felt ceremony.
