🐴 Mighty Mondays Starting This Week
We've decided to kick off the week with a bit of excitement for our students and staff. That's why we're introducing Mighty Monday assemblies every Monday morning, starting this Monday, April 15th. Please ensure your child arrives on time and is dressed in school colors (blue and white) to show their school spirit. Also, kindly note that on Monday mornings, we'll be focusing on supporting the assemblies for student, so we kindly request that parents refrain from entering the building during this time. Thank you for your understanding and support!
