Last week we reviewed staying safe at school. Are you staying safe in these last few weeks of school? I hope so. This week we will concentrate on owning our school and acting responsibly, two very important things to do as we get closer to the final day of school.

Marcel Proust, a French novelist, critic, and essayist, wrote, "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."


And today, we have Andres Balderas from Mr. Sandoval's class to lead you in the pledge.  Now, please stand...Put your right hand over your heart, ready begin...

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Special Announcements

Remember to please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of students taking MAP tests and SBAC exams.

Also remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want all of our plants to grow!

Finally, remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
