Dear Parents,

We are beginning a week-long holiday, under the focus of Thanksgiving.  As I was walking through classrooms Friday, one student said that Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday of the year.

It was such a beautiful, humbling reminder to me of the importance of spending time with family and sharing good food and happy moments together.

Physical and emotional safety is a Charter priority

Charter News • October 19, 2018

The use of technology and the impact of social media on students and adults alike has become an issue that is near and dear to my heart. Personally, I think I am on screens too much..especially when I am with people whom I love and care about my relationship with. This year, I have made a strong commitment to monitor the amount of time I spend to review and send emails.
