Rio Families. How cool is it that we have a family book night next week?! If you are thinking you dropped the ball this year, don’t give up on reading a great book with your kids and attending the gathering next Wednesday night in the MPR. What a wonderful opportunity for parents and children. Cricket in Time Square for K-3 and Esperanza Rising for grades 4-6. Really hope to see many of you there to support our school, our kids, and a love of literature.ImageImage
