A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 10/23/2022

Dear Central Road Families:

It is hard to believe how quickly the month of October has been flying by. Students has been engaged in both academic and social-emotional learning this week. The weather has been a bit unpredictable so thank you for sending our students dressed for both in and outdoor learning and fun. We appreciate you taking the time to read and review our weekly communication. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out for support and/or clarification. Please enjoy the weekend with family and friends. We will see our students back at school on Monday, October 24th.
