  • Happy Thanksgiving Week! Enjoy your fall break students!  I wish you a safe, happy and restful week off!  Don't forget you all have a Values Clarification assignment due Thursday, Nov. 30th.  Many of you have already turned this in, but for those who haven't, perhaps you can find 20 minutes to work on it with a parent or guardian!
