Scholastic Book Fair Special Message:
The Scholastic Book Fair has come and gone. Thanks to all of the families who supported the fair. It was successful!

Tynea Wright, Dorin Castro, Cindy Wahtola, Ciara Intengun-Cuisia, John Stokes, Tiffany Harston, Jasmine Alexander, Stephanie Vazquez, Lisa Borrelli, Mario Jackson, Monica Miranda, Julie McMillan, and Rhonda Collins. We were also lucky enough to have three students who helped out Bryanna F., Isaiah V. and Diego M.
The faculty deserves a big ‘thank you’ for giving of their break room.
