Thanks to a great idea from Ms. Montgomery, we will be ordering oversized outdoor games for students to use in the meantime.

Community Collaboration Room...

During the summer, we will be breaking down the computer lab to convert it into a community collaboration room for our parents. It will be a space for parents to get clothing, shoes, toiletries. Additionally, thanks to a partnership with MUST ministries, we will also be a location of a food pantry for our families.


In leu of the computer lab, we will be getting an additional Chromebook cart.


If anyone would like to help us this summer with painting and redecorating the lab, please let me know.

Coaches Corner...

From Heather Welch:


Ditch the Desk & Flexible Learning Spaces

Remove the teacher’s desk and students feel more comfortable and less intimidated, teachers feel more active and engaged, and classroom learning happens in a shared space. Read more here:
