Good morning, Hawk Families!

Welcome to windy season! New Mexico March winds can get crazy sometime! Please stay safe!

March is a very busy month with several activities and athletics competing in their end of season competitions. We also have spring break coming around the corner.

A reminder that this year is adoption material for social studies. If you are interested in reviewing the social studies adoption material, you’re welcome to review them at the Teaching and Learning Center downtown. (TLC)
