Have a wonderful week as we work together to help our little coyotes find their greatness!
It is hard to believe we are entering the last 4 weeks of this school year. The daylight is longer, the temperature is rising and the sunshine is making an appearance in between rainy days. We continue to maintain our daily routines with the students as much as possible. There will be a variety of events in which they will be partaking in the next few weeks (field trips, in-class learning activities, special visitor presentations,etc.). It's important that home and school continue working together to help the children find their greatness every day.
