“A student centered, technologically engaging learning community focused on S.T.E.M. education to encourage the highest level of career and college preparation.”
We have had such a great year that I was hoping you would join me in a very short, yet very powerful act this week. This week we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with the rest of the country. Our school community's PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) has planned some great opportunities to share our appreciation for their efforts to lead our students and serve our community.
If you feel led to do so, please take a moment to share a note, send an email, or make a call to simply thank our hard working faculty and staff. A kind word goes a long way, and I appreciate your efforts to make our school community a positive environment for our children.
Have a great one!
PASS testing will be given on Thursday, May 7 and Friday, May 8 for all students in science and social studies.
