celebration! Students in Grades K-6 are invited to use this year’s

School. Grades 7 and 8 are invited to create a Word Cloud to share what
they love about our school. (Mom and Dad can share some of their
ideas, too!) Check out the samples outside the LEAD Room to get ideas.
An email was also sent home with more information and the
necessary documents. Documents can also be found on Sycamore and on the LEAD
