A huge thank you to everyone who came to the Tiger Trot Family Engagement event! We had a great time, and we hope to keep the tradition going next year! Be sure to check out the pictures on our school Facebook page!

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day occurs on December 7 of each year, designated in memory of the lives lost in the 1941 attack and to remember that we enjoy freedom thanks to their sacrifice.

Our flag will be flown half mast.
