Here is the link to the online performances from our Chinese classes for the Chinese New Year. Enjoy!
Thank you to the PTA volunteers who helped us with Internet Safety Week last week! The internet can be a dark and scary place if not used with boundaries and proper education.

Outside the Principal’s Office
As part of our annual evaluation process, all teachers and administrators are asked to get feedback from key stakeholders in a survey. I have attached the results from the surveys that I administered to teachers, parents and one grade level, 5th grade, of students.
Have a wonderful week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
