Happy Thanksgiving!

On behalf of all the faculty and staff, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am thankful for our hard-working, talented employees, as I’m sure you are. I am also thankful for your constant support of the school and our community.

I am especially thankful for the people who work with us to make the school a better community, even when issues arise that challenge us. I’m grateful for these people because it shows several positive things:
1) You are willing to partner with us in solving the problem; 2) You trust that we are able to resolve the issue; and 3) You understand that we cannot do our best for your children without your help.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Break!
Gary Green
