October E-blast 2016

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone is off to a great start. The children are amazing.  It is such a great honor to impact your children through education and character development.  A big “Thank You” to all of you who helped make our Patriot Observation a great success. We also wanted to thank all of you who came to “See you at the Pole” to pray for our school. We believe the students are learning the important lesson of honoring those who care for us in our community as well as the privilege to live in America every day.
