Shallcross Renovation Exclusive

We recently interviewed Mrs. Quinn and Mr. Terrell to get you, the community, more information on the renovation of our shared community space in Shallcross Hall. Mrs. Quinn shared that the newly renovated building will have more glass so that visitors on tours will have an easier way to look into the classrooms without disrupting them.

So, sixth graders, when you jump in the water on the beach, you should not expect to get eaten by a shark or to see the windfish. With that aside, enjoy the comic!
