Our last day is designed to be a school wide celebration of the year that was. As you can see, there will not be a traditional awards ceremony. Rather, we will on a wide scale recognize improvement, growth, learning, effort, and group contributions to a positive school community. Parents are more than welcome to join us at 10:10 for this celebration.
