Dear Parents,

Thank you for helping us keep kids safe.

Sincerely,

ALLY WEEK is November 10th through November 21st.  Look for ally building and equity activities and assemblies.

We are working on building a community of Allies at our school to help prevent bullying and continue to improve our school climate.  Teachers will be teaching lessons about how to be an ally.  School wide, we will be working on writing ally messages and students will be having conversations with their families about what it means to be an ally.  Parents and Guardians, we'd love to see your ally messages too.  Please send your messages back to school so we can post them along with the messages from the students.
