Week of May 8, 2017

Thursday Folder Fliers:

SSN Store:

The SSN room had a great time this week selling items to our students in preparation for Mother's Day. The students gained valuable skills in the areas of financial literacy, communication, and collaboration. The classroom was able to raise over $1200! This money will be put back into classrooms to support student learning. Thank you for your support of our students and their learning! 

We have two staff members retiring this year. Charlie Ghidotti, our physical education teacher, is retiring after 5 years of service with Douglas County. Claire Shadow, our librarian, is retiring after 24 years of service with Douglas County. Please wish them well as they begin a new journey.
