Also, many many thanks to all who helped make our first Teacher/Staff Appreciation luncheon on September 23rd a huge success by bringing delicious food, setting up, and cleaning up afterwards! It was a great start to the year!

From the Principal
Conferences are in 2 short weeks, so please check with your teacher about your day and time. We are hoping for 100% participation, and if you need support attending, contact our Family Advocate Annie Gage. We continue to practice ‘respect’ and in October we will practice ‘responsibility.’ Please talk about responsibility and give your student(s) things to be responsible for. Be sure to keep reading and playing outside together.
See you soon – Mr. T
