• Principal's Weekly Message

    Hello Families & Partners -

    We had a fun and festive end to Quarter 3 today with our Spring Dance.   While this was a whole staff & OG Supporter effort, a special shout out to Ms. Halbig, Ms. Stone, Ms. Tore and all of our Leadership students.  It was wonderful to see the excitement, laughter and amazing dance moves from our students.  Students also had the opportunity to participate in Board Games, Chess, Arts, Computer Games and many other options.  It would not have been possible without all the support from staff & volunteers, so THANK YOU for everyone’s piece in creating some joy in our community.  


    Please see below for some important updates!
