A Note from Our Principal 

As we kickstart October, I want to reflect on the changing seasons and the wonderful opportunities that await our students. Fall offers the perfect backdrop for learning. Our students will explore the outdoors and feel the crisp air while participating in memorable, seasonal activities. We have a lot of exciting things planned this month, including pumpkin decorating, our costume parade, and more. We will keep you updated via Links to Home and Transparent Classroom. Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. We look forward to a season filled with growth, learning, and fun.
