    Starting tomorrow, the positivity project word of the week is integrity. It is defined as someone being honest and speaking the truth. Also, one presents themselves genuinely and sincerely. Ask your child, this week, about the word and how they apply it in their daily decisions.

     

    Last chance to order spirit wear is today, Sunday, October 7! You can purchase spirit wear, join the PTSA, and make a donation through our online school store: https://emillbrook.memberhub.store/. Be sure to visit our webpage and like us on Facebook for the most recent PTSA information.
