Principal Hansen's Message

It was a great opening of school!  Our students had a fantastic first week and are getting settled into their classes.  Thank you to all parents, staff and teachers for your hard work to assure a smooth opening for our kids. On the first day at school we had a special guest to remind our students about recycling.  Be sure to ask your children about the recycling robot!
