November Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We just completed our annual Run for Vets program on November 2, 2016, which was a tremendous success!  The day started with a breakfast to honor our veterans, some of whom traveled a great distance to participate.  Here we were able to recognize and introduce Veterans from all branches of the military and thank them for their service to our country.  During the day, many Veterans visited classrooms to speak in more detail about why they chose to join the military and their personal experiences.  After school hours we organized our races, relays and walks about our school.  We had music blaring, sold refreshments and had a face painting station hosted by our National Junior Art Honor Society students.  We were very lucky to have some warm temperatures and spirits were just as high! 

Thank you again to all of our Veterans who participated throughout the day’s festivities. Thank you to our dedicated teaching staff for organizing one of the largest school-sponsored events McAuliffe hosts during the year.  Thank you to all of the parents and businesses who donated, time, money, baked goods, and refreshments for our Veterans and this important and patriotic cause.
