Due to a power outage. We are going dismiss school early today. Busses will leave the school at 1 o'clock. The phone system is down. Please contact your child if you need to get us a message.
At the Middle School, Mrs. Mitts’ February lessons focused on kindness, respectful communication, and self-love. One of our activities was to write a positive note to a peer or staff member - it was so cool to see all these positive messages in one place! For March, students will be learning about self-awareness and social-awareness. This comes at a perfect time for us to focus on one another’s strengths and learning respect for those who are different than us, as March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness month!
