Welcome back Broncos!

I hope that everyone had a safe and restful holiday break! I am excited for the New Year and all the wonderful things to come for our school in 2022! There are still lots of ways to get involved and make a positive impact on our school and our students! We need people to chair our monthly cultural/diversity themes, need grade level help with the Bronco garden, and we are still looking for someone to help with the fun run! See below for a list of opportunities in the next several months.  If you are willing to help with any of these, please contact me and we will put your talents to good use!
So happy to be back in school! Let’s make the second half of the year even better than the first!
