Today is known as Patriots day. We recognize this day as 9/11 because on this day in 2001, America was attacked with horrific acts of terrorism. Close to 3,000 Americans were killed including many first responders who lost their lives saving others. Let us all remember those who we lost and be grateful for our freedoms!

LOST & FOUND ITEMS: Please stop by the Main Office if you have lost something or if you have found something that someone has lost. Our drawers already have things from this year– jewelry, planner, sweatshirts and more. If you lost something that hasn’t been found yet, fill out a form so we can notify you when it’s found!
