Soaring to Excellence

Thursday Folders – November 5, 2020

Posted: Nov 05, 2020

Principal’s Corner

Alicia and I wanted to take a moment of gratitude. We realize just how much change and pivoting we have had to do over the last 7 months. Each time we go through another change we prioritize safety, instruction, and the social-emotional needs of our entire community. Despite our individual situations we continue to come together because we know we must. We just want to take a moment and acknowledge you, your thoughtfulness, and your support of our students.
