Do you wonder what teachers do on asynchronous Wednesdays? This is a terrific video from Mrs. Modine and teachers in each grade level describing what they do on Wednesdays. Bonus - they share insights on other days, too! This is good stuff you don't want to miss! These teachers are working so hard and their love and dedication to our kids continually shines through! Thank you, teachers, for ALL you do! You are seen and appreciated!

Make sure your AmazonSmile account is linked to our PTO, not PTA!
Lots of people have been notifying us that they are getting a message from AmazonSmile that their charity is not supported by AmazonSmile. You simply need to switch your chosen charity from the old McAlpine PTA to PTO!
