We’re making a change in the format for our sharing our knowledge of our Where in the World magnet theme. We will not be holding town meetings on January 30th as originally scheduled. For this theme, we will be creating a “Gallery of Learning.” Student works illustrating the theme will be on display in our front hallway the week of February 23rd through the 27th.
