pictures; and PTO members who decorated the Fold out Board. The exhibit won a blue ribbon and

Reserve Champion ribbon. The students, staff, board of education and parents are proud of the school

and what we all have been able to accomplish in the 12 years the school has been in existence. The

school had open house Thursday August 14th
