School has started and the journey has begun! As we enter September, things are running smoothly and the students seem excited for another wonderful school year. We are all hoping for a more quiet school year weather-wise.
Open House was a success. Many parents attended, and students were excited to see their new Teachers and new classrooms. We have a new face in the 4th grade this year; Mrs. Elyssa Smart. She comes to us from North Carolina and has several years of successful teaching experience.
