21st Century Learning in Motion!
We take pride in having resources available that expose our students to 21st century learning opportunities.

AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK!
Public education is the cornerstone for our communities! For 97 years American Education Week (AEW) has celebrated the hard-working men and women who work on behalf of America’s students. This week is dedicated to elevating and championing the outstanding work and contributions of teachers, bus drivers, paraprofessionals, cafeteria workers, school nurses, school secretaries, and custodians—plus countless others! This year American Education Week was celebrated the week of November 12-16. Our students participated in many fun educational activities to celebrate the hard work and efforts of everyone that play a role in their education. Over 600 student participated in our Grab and Go event and was given a free book.
