Keys to Character Unlock the Future!
This will be a special week! We are hosting our annual Back to School Night on Tuesday. As the parents arrive, we will be having a "Clap In" featuring teachers, community leaders, and other volunteers. We want to make sure that the parents are celebrated for their role at our AWESOME school!
Last week we had a lot of activities happening throughout the school. We had our annual Fire Drills and Security Drills. The students and teachers did a great job! On Friday, Dr. Cook participated in the "#principalsinaction" movement. Principals from around the world are showing students that they can have fun too.
The Weekly Video took a step forward this week. We used TouchCast to make the video feel more like a "studio." Dr. Cook admits that he is still learning the app, and hopes to learn more each week. Thank you to Thomas and Alyssia for delivering a great message!
