PRINCIPAL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE

The Week of: January 29, 2018

 

Dear Parents,

While short, it was quite a busy week here . . .  Our Elementary School students celebrated the 100th day of school, and were treated to a special assembly as our 2ndgrade presented: My Funny Valentine.   Our Middle School students competed in our annual War of the Roses school spirit competition.  We all observed Respect for All Week by participating in some special activities, including taking our anti-bullying pledge, engaging in Random Acts of Kindness, and contributing to our St. Jude fundraiser.  Many middle school students participated in our IncludED workshop, where we looked at our similarities and our differences, and talked about ways of ensuring everyone feels included and happy in our learning community.
