What's Your Why?

 The Superintendent of schools, Dr. Ghilani, has asked all of our faculty to reflect and share "WHY" they got into teaching.  So often in every walk of life it is not the "HOW" we do something that gets the best results, it is the "WHY" we do something.  I've asked all teachers to display these outside of their classrooms, so when you are visiting our schools you know "WHY" we are all here!  Make sure to take a moment to read them during Open House, or check them out below...

Bring In Your Box Tops

The PTA will continue to collect Box Tops this year.  You do not have to attach them to a collection sheet like in years past.  Just send them in a baggie and your child can place them in the Box Top collection bin in their home room.
 
If you are wondering what types of products you can find Box Tops on, please click on the link below:
 
 
If you are wondering why we collect these, please watch the video of our students below;
