Quote of the day: from Ralph Marston

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.

Many thanks to all the students who stayed to participate in classrooms, in the food serving line, and as general guides at the Showcase Monday night.  Countless parents of prospective students stopped by to tell your administrators how poised, articulate, and well-spoken our students are!  You represented your school and yourselves very well and it is appreciated!  Thank you!!

Practice L&N Habits every day: Collaboration, Critical thinking, Design, Innovation, Inquiry, & Professionalism
