Welcome Event a Huge Success!

We had an AMAZING turnout for the welcome event on Sunday. So many students and families, both new to the school and returning, came to be part of the festivities. Lots of teachers and staff, including Principal Hoke, were on hand to welcome and chat with the community.

We ate, we bounced, we did crafts, we painted faces, we played chess, and we spent time with old and new friends getting excited about the upcoming school year. Thanks to everyone who came out today to participate in this great event. Special thanks to all those who volunteered to help make it happen.
