Media Permission
Students please help our school by getting your media permission forms back to your teachers.  There are some amazing things happening in your learning communities and we can't properly show what you are doing without permission to put your pictures in daily announcements or the occasional newspaper article.

Walking and Biking to School
An amazing number of students walked and biked to school on Wednesday September 16th even though it was NOT an official Walk/Bike to School day.  The initiative to get going on your own, or with your parent's support, is exciting for us to observe.  Walking and biking are healthy activities and a great way to start your day.  Congratulations to all who got here under their own power.

In October every Wednesday will be a Walking(biking) Wednesday!  Here is the official walking schedule for the school year.
