   We appreciate ALL you do for 

    our students!  THANK YOU!!!

“Some sacred seed lurks in each human personality, no matter how lowly its origin on earth; to give every such seed the deepest possible roots and the highest possible flowering is in the vision and hope of those ideas of freedom and discipline which constitute the American dream.”   Carl Sandburg      



As a small token of our appreciation, please help yourself to a packet of flower or vegetable seeds at the main office of each school during National Volunteer Week.
