Another Amazing Week!

Our 5th graders were real superstars this past Tuesday when they presented their Famous Americans to parents and community members.  Thanks again to our teachers for facilitating, and a special thanks to the kids for teaching us so much about American History through the lives of some of its most famous people.

Many of our staff members enjoyed a presentation and professional development from Kidpower.org.  If you would like to know more about Kidpower.org, you can go on their website and read about ways to help your child use safe and healthy choices.  

Our ORCA Power drawings are going very well.  Students love hearing their friends’ names get drawn, and they cheer each other on.  Students receive ORCA power when they are simply doing the right thing.

Just another reminder that our Jazz Band is extremely excited about their upcoming January Jazz concert. This concert benefits the music program directly. The 4:00 PM concert allows the students to show off their amazing talents, as well as an opportunity to hear the Terra Nova Jazz Ensemble. It allows students to see where they can be.

The evening event at 7:00 PM is a wonderful adults only event where three amazing professional jazz ensembles will be entertaining, along with a silent auction and delicious food. You can get your tickets by clicking here.
