Wildcat Weekly - Week of June 12, 2017










A very special thanks to Ruca Abbott and Dionne McFie as well as their army of helpers and all the families who contributed to the Staff Appreciation Luncheon.  Giving staff that last bit of energy needed to finish the year strong, the incredible spread of food in an amazing atmosphere created by the group, made it difficult to return to classes.  Though it is nice to have such a wonderful meal, it is even more special as it comes from parents.  Thanks again for your generosity of food, creativity, and time.
