Principal Madden’s Weekly Message—Week of September 27, 2021
I hope you all enjoyed the lovely weekend!
This week’s photos show our Autumnal Equinox photo of DAY = NIGHT! Also, there are some photos of our fabulous head gear for this special occasion. 5th graders are collecting leaves at recess to feed their new classroom worms, first graders are hard at work in the garden, and some 4th graders are showcasing their jump roping talents and cooperation at recess.
I hope that everyone received the call from our Superintendent, Dr. Provost, letting you know about COVID updates. You should have received these notices in your email, but if you missed any of them, here they are.
