If you love to read to children, please consider volunteering for Project Cornerstone!

December’s character trait is “Caring.”

We will read the book, “Say Something” by Peggy Moss

Theme: If you see an injustice... say something! Say and do something. Move from bystander to becoming an UPstander.  

Goal for December: Provide students with concrete examples of bully behaviors and discuss strategies for safely responding to verbal, physical, and relational bullying. Use kindness and be an UPstander to counteract negative behavior.

If you are considering extended travel that impacts your child’s attendance at school, please make sure you understand these policies before making travel plans.
