Music Cornercolorful musical notes

Wow! What a wonderful assembly that we had on Friday! It was wonderful to hear about how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Greta Thunberg, Malala, Emmanuel Yeboah and Ruby Bridges used their words and actions to create change! Every person has the power to change the world, and we were so happy to hear the voices of our students come together to sing “Together We Can Change the World”! Students also presented their handprint creations for how they would like to change the world. You can watch our school video here.

COVID Communication

The Department of Health (DOH) requires schools to inform families and students about COVID-19 case numbers and potential outbreaks. Last week, there was three confirmed cases at our school. The accuracy of our data depends on self-reporting. Thank you for continuing to let the school know if your child tests positive for COVID-19. To view additional information, including school and district trends visit the District’s COVID-19 data dashboard. The dashboard is updated weekly on Monday evenings.

If your child is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 keep them home and test for COVID-19. Families can order free COVID-19 tests from the state. Together, we can keep our schools healthy and safe.
