Please Talk with your Students
One of our focusses this year has been surrounding kindness and respect forward each other, including adults. I would like to solicit your help in joining us by speaking openly and explicitly with your students regarding these two traits. We have fantastic kids at our school but consistent reminders for everyone is very useful, especially from those that they love and respect. I see constant, everyday acts of kindness and respect at school but I also see instances of disrespectful and negative behavior that should have no place in any setting. We truly love your students and want them to not only succeed academically, but more importantly, in the areas of kindness and respect. Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Candlelight School Coin Drive
We wanted to give you a final update on our coin drive. We ended up raising $8500 for the school. I received a very sweet letter of appreciation from Fred Afwai and the Candlelight School. I have attached this letter to this email as well as some pictures they sent of some students.

Please see the above calendar to see when your grade level is assigned. If your grade level is not listed, it is more than two weeks out. Check back!
