    We have several new shoutouts, TWO are going to ALL OUR SPECIALISTS for the wonderful job they are doing on our DAILY NEWS SEGMENT!

    "We just love watching Morning Meeting together! Mr. and Mrs. Brooks really know how to make the kids smile and we just love it. Thank You!"

    "My kids just absolutely get a kick out of the daily newscast. It's a fun way to start their day, and I really appreciate the efforts you guys are all putting into this fun project. Keep up the awesome work! And kudos to all the behind-the-scenes staff at the school as well!!"


    Ms. Ciampi

    Our next shoutout goes out to Ms. Ciampi!  One family says: "She is so incredibly patient with a class full of chatty 1st graders! I can’t imagine doing her job with as much grace as she shows everyone! Keep up the wonderful work and thank you for how hard you’re working!"

    Ms. Hagwood

    One student wanted to let us know how great Ms. Hagwood is! "Mrs. Hagwood is very patient and understanding. She makes me feel comfortable to ask when I have questions even if it is something I should already know."

  • Fun Friday!

    October's theme is - DISNEY DAY!

    October 30 is the last Friday of the month, and this month is all things Disney!  You can also pick your favorite character from other things and dress up like them too.  Now, don't worry!  This isn't about costumes!  Its about being creative with what you own and finding a way to see DISNEY in it!  This is called "Disneybounding" by some people, and is one of my favorite things to do!
