Sixth Graders Study Greece
During the past few weeks, the 6th graders have been learning about ancient Greece. One of their project-based learning activities was to research a Greek God or Goddess. The students needed to research the what their God or Goddess represented, their family, and clothing that was worn. The 6th graders did an amazing job and had so much fun presenting to their parents and the students in K-5. [PHOTO]

A Message From Dr. Mugits

Although the recent cold weather may have people thinking of winter, we have only completed our 8th day of school. This year marked my 40th “opening day” of school.  Every opening day produces excitement and challenges. The first day holds the promise of a fresh start and optimism. The callenges arise from the reminder that school staff members have a tremendous responsibility of sustaining the dreams and nurturing the hope of all learners. This is certainly not a task to be taken lightly. [MESSAGE]
