Hello Families,

We are getting so excited to start the Social Studies unit next week about Westward Expansion and visiting Ocanaluftee Indian Village on May 16.

Please remember to be here on time that day as our bus will be leaving at 8 am!

Also, as of today our students have already raised $88 for the Beloved House in our Change for Change drive.

We are so proud of our second grade students for giving up some of their wants to meet the needs of others.

Thank you for everything you do.
