CHARACTER TRAIT: Compassion & Kindness

“Kindness is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.”

Lunch: Chicken & Waffles (Chicken Tenders, Waffle French Fries, Waffle & Syrup) Mandarin Orange & Milk

ATTENTION STUDENTS & PARENTS: We are currently having some safety issues with students not using the crosswalks that are painted on the road. Please be reminded to use these areas when exiting/going to vehicles in the mornings/afternoons or crossing the road. It only takes a few more seconds of your time. Remember this is for your safety. Thank you! Officer Lane
