"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants."  
- Deuteronomy 32:2
April 11th, 2018
From Mrs. Rowley       
Welcome back to everyone. I hope you all had a restful Easter break. This week we welcome our Design for Excellence Visiting Team who will spend the week observing our school. Please keep us - and them - in your prayers. Just a reminder that Friday is an early release day to facilitate our final meeting with the team, so there will be no extended day. While we welcomed Spring a few weeks ago, we are looking forward to welcoming Spring weather! Next week, April 16, begins Spring uniform. On Sunday, April 15, we will have our used uniform sale in the gym.

Have a blessed week.

I ask your help in making the visiting DFE team feel the warmth and cooperation of our little community. We still need some generous smiling faces to sign up to provide items and clean up help for the visiting team's meals. 

Please take a look and see where you can help out.

On behalf of the PTO Board and the teachers and staff, thank you for helping us put our best feet forward because, after all, it's all about the children.

Many thanks,
