Quarter 3 week 9: This week might have been the most fun week of the year. Love of reading combined with spirit week made for some interesting attire. Thursday and Friday we had almost 100% participation with outfits. Thank you to the parents for your help in getting the kids decked out.

Spring break is two weeks with everyone returning to school on 3/21. Please get plenty of rest because the fourth quarter goes so fast.

We do have some fun events coming up so keep an eye on the newsletter. Be safe, have fun, make memories, study math and most of all enjoy your break.
