Happy Thanksgiving!!!

May God Continue to Bless Us All!


Indoor/Outdoor Shoes

Please be aware that students will need an indoor set of shoes, preferably ones that can be used for indoor PE.  (They may already have a pair…)  Students will be asked to take off outdoor shoes/boots at the front door, carry them to their lockers, and change into indoor shoes.  The “grace period” is over.  J 


This endeavor keeps our school cleaner.  Thanks for your support!
