Thank you Mr. Hinton for your time, knowledge and expertise!

The following day, Eric Sagasser from the Department of Natural Resources came to Central Elementary and talked with students about the life of amphibians. He discussed...
Our Digital students are becoming poets. Incorporated into our Studies Weekly, students will often do a little extra and complete the ELA assignments as well. This student went that extra mile and wrote a poem. Great job!
