School will operate on normal schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, May 8.
During Bulldogs Care Days this year, sixth grade students watched the documentary Living on One Dollar, and learned how poverty affects millions of people in rural, remote areas of the world.

Bracelets cost 50 cents to $2, and would make great Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation gifts! Please see Mrs. Carter with questions.
