CELEBRATING DR. SEUSS' BIRTHDAY
Primary students celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday. They enjoyed reading his books and eating green eggs and ham. Even teachers joined the fun by dressing as Thing 1 and Thing 2! We celebrated his imagination, creativity and the enjoyment his books provide.
SPRING CONFERENCES
We thank our parents and the PTO for our delicious meals for Parent Teacher Conferences! The dinner and desserts were greatly appreciated!

Our final day of Spring conferences will be held Thursday, March 12th. We enjoy the opportunity to share students' incredible growth and next steps. We look forward to our final parent meetings next week!
