Principal Madden’s Weekly Update—Week of December 2

Principal Madden’s Weekly Update—Week of December 2

Snowy December Greetings!

Our Student Leadership Team had a great idea to try this December. They wanted to have a “Little Toy Drive”. The flyer with information is attached. Let me know if you have any questions.



This week’s photos show lots of fun at the kindergarten and first grade Thanksgiving Feasts the day before Thanksgiving. Thank you to all the families who donated food and came to enjoy the community celebrations. One of the highlights was the kindergarten slide show about something they are each are thankful for holiday. Look on our website to see them all!

Also, the first graders were out and about around the school reading their recent published writing. I had the great pleasure of listening to three of them in my office.
