Cheers to our TAs and Paraeducators!

Do you know who your child's TA and/or Paraeducator is? Take this opportunity to thank them for the special attention they give to your kiddo. They are unsung heroes in many ways; underpaid and perhaps unappreciated. I can tell you that our school would not be exceptional without them. Cheers, fellows.

4th Grade Marketplace Day

4th Graders engaged in a "class store" activity this week. Students thought of items to sell and were tasked with marketing their merch, setting prices, and interacting with customers carrying play money. It was a great opportunity for students to practice real-world math skills!
