November 19th Message from Principal Harris

Hello Lions,

We ended our week with a field trip to Northwest Trek. It sounds like students got to see a lot of cool animals. Shout out to our parents and community members who joined as chaperones. We couldn’t have pulled this off without you. Thanks to the teachers and staff that attended as well. It takes a lot to step out of the classroom routine, so we appreciate all that you do.

Please take time to review the updates below. This week is a short two-day week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. Stay safe and I hope you enjoy good times with family and friends.
