Today is Secretaries Recognition Day and we have some of the best in Mrs. Lovejoy, Mrs. Sian, Mrs. Sian, Mrs. Bell, Ms. Bressette and Ms. Rogers! If you haven't already, stop by and thank them, give a note or small token of thank you to them. There is just no way the district would run without these 5 ladies- they ARE the people who run the district. They provide support to families, constantly help each of us and are the people answering a million student questions and needs. Not only that, but it's the thousands of things behind the scenes no one sees- paperwork, documentation, conversations with other districts and agencies, the scheduling and organizing of every possibly event and how they take initiative and think ahead to what is upcoming to ensure we are prepared. Thank ladies for your amazing kindness and work ethic!

Mrs. Brownlee's class was visited by Mrs. Jardas today! While the class was reading the book Crusty Crusaders - Scabs to the Rescue, one of the students shared that her mom is a wound care expert. She volunteered to come in and share her expertise about how amazing our bodies are and the steps needed to heal from a wound. They also learned that they should not pick scabs, and about why the blood in our veins look blue. Then, she left us some goodies for the next time we have a cut or scrape. Thank you, Mrs. Jardas!
