As we continue to work through this long snow event, please remember to take just a little bit more time in driving through school zones and dropping and picking up your students. Thanks for your attention to keeping kids safe!

Every month we focus on one of the Seven Habits. Our fourth habit is below:

Habit 4: Think Win-Win.

Everyone can win.

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want.  When conflicts arise, I look for a win-win solution.  I am the leader of me.

Thank you for supporting our school as we teach students how to be happy and successful!
