FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Our Walk-A-Thon was a wonderful success. Thanks to Ms. Q and team for organization and fun. Please support your student with donation collections.

Thursday we practiced for a full lockdown. Students and staff were calm in being prepared. We also discussed school safety at the PTSA meeting and I appreciate your many good questions and ideas.

We look forward to seeing you at conferences next week!
