    Honoring our faculty and staff

    It certainly takes a village to make our school run efficiently. This year, our campus leadership team decided to honor one area of our school per month. We would love it if you and your children help us celebrate each of these faculty members during their month. It doesn't have to be anything big - a sweet note from your child can make all the difference in the world! If you choose to do something more, that is always appreciated as well.
