We will be welcoming two new staff members to the Community House team this week. Ms. Gabriela Carvalho will be joining us as a 7th language arts teacher for the students that were originally assigned to Ms. McCullough’s class and Ms. Debi Marshall will be taking over for Ms. Spinazzola who resigned the first week of school. Please help me welcome these two new members of the Cavalier team!
This week we will host softball and volleyball at home on Monday and on Tuesday we will have our 7th and 8th grade Curriculum Night event. Parking will be tight so plan to be here early as we will start in first block at 6:00 PM. All TD families are invited to the media center at 5:30 for the yearly TD informational meeting.
Please consider donating the PTO Capital Campaign. At this point the fundraiser has not even brought in half of the projected amount. These donations are used to equip the school with additional resources. Over the years we have used these funds to purchase Smartboards, Chromebooks, textbooks and to send staff to professional development trainings. We appreciate your support of our school and thank you to those who have already donated.
Stay dry this weekend!!
