Dear Caring and Hardworking Staff,

KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • Christine Morton for all her effort with the musical concert!
  • All the teachers who practiced with their students in their classrooms.
  • Patty Collins for her work coaching the actors.
Important Items to Know:

Literacy PD - From Aimee,  all K-6 teachers district wide need to collect a sample from the December testing window of the writing about reading portion. Please submit your samples to your principals by Jan. 3.  Let me know if you have questions!
