A MESSAGE FROM MRS. SUSAN BENDER,
PRINCIPAL

CANVAS PAINTING WAS A BLAST!
We had a packed house at our canvas painting event last week! I believe that a fun and creative time was had by all! We plan to have more of these events next school year so I hope that you will come out and join the fun! Costs were paid for using our Title I funds. Our students will also be participating in school-wide visual arts events next year. 





SO GENEROUS... SO APPRECIATED...
Last week during teacher/staff appreciation week our teachers and staff members were overwhelmed with kind gestures from thoughtful family members and by our wonderful PFO! Our staff even enjoyed "room service" breakfast served by a few of our families and a few of our really great kids! Thank you for all of your wonderful gestures throughout the week... 
we all felt very special!
