School Spirit Week was enjoyed by all.  We had a great week and the students did an amazing job sharing their enthusiasm during our closing assembly.  
If you have time on Thursday mornings or know of anyone looking for a great school for their children, stop by and tour the building.  You will see the extraordinary things the children are doing.  
Please send in nonperishable foods for Chapel. We are collecting breakfast foods this month but, you may send in any items you wish.  Anything will be appreciated.  Thank you and God Bless.
