Recently, Team USA has started working on the concerns in the hallway. Transition times can be difficult when it's the older students and they younger students in the hallway at the same time. In the video above, Team USA gave first graders a chance to talk about what bothers them in the hallway.

Operation Happiness

We had successful day yesterday! Our school brought in  253 nonperishable items in just one day! Good job. Make sure that you remember every morning when you go to school to grab some! We have the rest of this week and two days after Thanksgiving break to reach our goal of 3,000. So keep up the good work!
Thank you,
