1st quarter summary

As we approach the end of our 1st 9 weeks we are happy to report that our students have settled in to the new school year and already earning KEYS to their Big Life! We have focused on the “Who Matters” Key this 9 weeks.

Who Matters?, deals with the strengths we each possess, and how each one of us can use our strengths and resources to make a difference in our own lives and in the lives of those we meet. Teachers and para-educators have been creating fun and exciting activities to go along with this key, and our students have been invested in discovering their own strengths.

Students have also been focused on their academic success this 9 weeks, and have been knocking it out of the park with regard to effort shown individually and in group settings!
