What's Coming Up This Week? February 13-17 This week we celebrated 100 days of school on Wednesday.  Our students are feeling 100 days smarter and are truly showing this in their learning.  It is so fun to be in classrooms and watching them engaged in reading, explaining their thinking to peers and using technology to enhance their learning.  Our students are working hard and they are enjoying the collaborative time with their peers as well.  Enjoy this three day weekend and hopefully some sunshine!

It is great to see so many of our families participating and enjoying family outings together at these events.  Our students have been working hard to bring in their change for Pennies for Patients. As of last Monday we were over half way to our goal already!
