From the Principal

Happy October!  It has been wonderful having the children back in school.

Our Back to School Night was well attended .  It's great when the school and family works together to help our children.

We kicked off the school year with our Annual Buddy Walk –a-Thon.  The children and staff created and wore crazy HATS, to celebrate our NEW school theme which is HATS OFF TO LEARNING.  The Acronym HATS stands for Habits, Attitudes, Talent and Skills.  You will hear more about our theme throughout the school year!
