Special thanks to   staff and families who made donations to brighten the holidays of those in need.We are a small school with a big heart. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. 


Guidance Message
Week of December 19:
December 21: Phrase of the Day: “Life is full of choices.  Choose carefully.”
We have many choices in life.  We can make choices that are good for us and others, or ones that hurt ourselves and others. When we control our anger and other feelings, we make positive choices and feel proud.  
December 22: Review of the month's concepts. Peacemaker Challenge:  Be kind to all and have a great vacation!
