SEL Theme this Month 

With the holiday season around the corner, we'll focus on gratitude to end the year. Students will learn about this topic and participate in activities related to gratitude during SEL classes. We’ll also come together for our monthly house morning meeting to engage in games and performances related to gratitude. 

CONGRATULATIONS to our Grade 4 & 5 Female Soccer Team for winning 2-1 vs Blue Valley School!  Special thank you to the Middle School players for supporting the team!
