Family Engagement Turkey
Thank you to our many families who participated in this project! Our turkey has served as a reminder of the many things we have to be thankful for this year. We know the time spent together as a family working on this project was time well spent. Your children are so proud to show off their contribution and the teachers have been very complimentary of your hard work. Thank you for participating in Title I!
