Yesterday we celebrated our first Success Factor Day of the 21-22 school year. It was wonderful to see all of our students in their grade level t-shirts! The energy in the building was amazing and our students celebrated their peers throughout the day. A special thank you to all of the staff members that made the day possible. It was a great day to be a Swan!
Congratulations to the following swans who were nominated by their peers to be their class’s Kindness Royalty!
A BIG thank you to our PTA Hospitality committee for delivering coffee and snacks to our teachers on Thursday morning!
