Breakaway Week

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Next week is our next Breakaway Week!  The theme this week is community engagement. We have structured the week to allow students time to experience volunteer opportunities.  You child has signed up for specific volunteer projects, some of which occur in the community and some here at school.

Please ask your child where they will be volunteering next week and contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

The schedule for next week is below. Please feel free to come and join us for any of the events that are happening.
