Principal's Message

I learned a lot at my PLC Summit conference this week. It reiterated to me how great all of you are and where we are as a PLC Culture. We still have ways to improve, but I am grateful for where we already are in the process. Thank you for advertising the Polar Plunge. We raised over $1,100 and unfortunately, I will be taking the plunge on February 10 at 1:30. Please mark it on your calendars.


Sincerely,

Adam
