What a memorable week 34 we’ve had and a busy beginning to May. It’s AAPI Heritage Month. Thank you all for a spectacular two weeks showing Appreciation for our Teachers & Staff, with two more weeks to continue the gratitude thru this month.

1. Room 209, 3rd Grade Detective Agency. We are so impressed by four 3rd grade students who put together a class detective agency to help their school peers. On their first day on the case, they solved the case of a missing jacket of a 1st grader and found it quickly in one afternoon. Way to go, Rm 209 students!
