Superintendent's Spotlight

Thanksgiving provides an opportunity to join with family and friends and reflect upon the many blessings experienced throughout the year. During this season of gratitude, we thank our families, staff, and community members for their valued partnership in ensuring student success. We will be celebrating a Wellness Weekend during the Thanksgiving break, November 21-25, where students and staff are encouraged to take time to refresh, relax, unwind, and spend time doing the things that bring joy. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
