Please note: As on Early Release Day Wednesdays, there will be NO SEPARATE KINDERGARTEN BUSES and Kindergarten students who ride will be transported to their morning bus stops and those who walk will walk home.


November Precept

I would like to share a precept each month with staff and students. These precepts will consist of powerful quotes or ideas that cause us to think about and help to guide our actions, both individually and when interacting with others. At the end of each month, I will honor any students who have responded to the precept, by sharing his/her thoughts on what it means to them, by asking them to serve as Pledge Leaders.


Our November Precept:

“It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers.” -James Thurber
