Life Skill of the Month
Our school counselor, Mrs. Meola along with the Student Council, will be introducing our school community with a Life Skill a Month.

- As we wind down the 2016-2017 school year let's start thinking about our Spring Goals. In the fall, we start the year off with motivation and try to reach goals we set for ourselves. By now, we may have reached those goals. Should we be happy with our success? Sure! But should we still challenge ourselves? Yes! Start to think of some Spring goals you may have for yourself that you can strive to complete by the end of the school year. Students who challenge themselves are most ready to be promoted to the next grade =)
We would like to welcome the members of the Student Council for 2016-2017 School Year!
