Dear Parents,

Elementary School: Jennifer Ponzi-Caputo, 

Middle School: BettyAnn Souffrin,

Our first ever Students vs. Staff Soccer Game was a huge success.  Shout out to the middle school students who had the idea and worked with Ms. Souffrin to make it happen!  Kudos to all who participated!  Bravo to our Panther Paws Dance Team (5th and 6th grade students) on their debut performance.  And, thanks to our high school cheer leaders who always make things just a little more special 🙂
