I was absolutely blown away by the amount of students that signed up for the tournament (21 third – sixth graders) and gave it their best shot! We had students who have only played a handful of times sign up and I could not be prouder of the bravery, sportsmanship, and leadership I saw throughout the tournament.

I cannot wait until next years’ match! I would also like to give a special shoutout to the students in my Chess Club as I am so proud of how far you have all come. Chess Club truly was one of the best parts of my week!

After School Sunflowers are Blooming!

Students in the After School Program planted sunflowers in their planter last quarter and they are really starting to grow! I cannot wait to see the flowers when they begin to bloom. Great job Panthers!

This quarter, each grade will be working in their own planter to grow a variety of flowers and delicious fruits, veggies, and herbs! I cannot wait to see the garden bursting with vegetation in a few weeks!
