We had a great first week with our students! Ask them about their classroom mission statements, goals, individual goals, leadership notebooks, etc!! We are setting sail this year with the “END IN MIND”.
We also had some transitions take place this week when we moved Mrs. Drew to our 3rd grade team in order to help reduce classroom sizes; although, this was a bittersweet transition, we are grateful for all Kinder and 3rd Grade Families for their understanding. Our 3rd graders will start in their new class on Wednesday, Sept. 2nd.
At this time, we are waiting for more information on our 4th grade classes. We have a request in for an additional teacher to help their class sizes as well. Thank you for your patience.
Welcome back and I look forward to seeing everyone Tuesday, Sept. 1st at our PTA Family Kick-off/ Pep Rally Night. Bring the whole family!
