This Week:

“Back to School Night”

It was wonderful to see so many parents attend our Back to School Night. A veteran teacher on staff told me that this
was the best turnout they had ever seen at this event. Parents were able to meet our teachers who gave them insight
into the expectations and activities going on in their classroom, and at our school. As parents left campus, they were
quick to thank me and praise the teachers that we have at our school. One parent told me that they wanted to go to high
school again because of the amazing things going on in class.
