Good Afternoon Families:

We have reached the final days of Quarter 1; it’s hard to believe that we have one-quarter of the school year behind us. Please note: our schedule is a bit unusual next week. Teachers will have a professional development day on Tuesday, November 8th, and therefore there is no school for students. School will be closed on Friday, November 11th, in observance of Veteran’s Day.

The goal is not to be betterthan anyone else but rather bebetter than you were yesterday.
