I continue to be amazed and thankful for the positive energy in this dynamic school community! Thanks to an amazing staff, countless hours donated by parent volunteers, cookie dough sales and Box Tops, we are able to provide the many enrichment activities listed in this newsletter and provide our school with playground equipment, healthy ISAT snacks, and more books for the media center. These are just a few of the many gifts given to our school by our generous parents – Thank You! [More Info]
