Back to School

Welcome back from Thanksgiving break! We hope everyone had a great time with their friends and family. We're excited to be back and looking forward to our two schools arriving on Wednesday, Miramonte Elementary and Maple Creek Elementary School. Make sure to bring your rain gear! The forecast is predicting rain for the latter part of the week.

Many of us enjoyed a festive turkey dinner this past week, so here are a few fun facts about turkeys to start off our week.
  • Wild turkeys see in color and have excellent daytime vision that is three times better than a human's eyesight. Their field of vision covers 270 degrees! 
  • A spooked turkey can run at speeds up to 25 miles per hour. They can also burst into flight approaching speeds between 50-55 miles per hour in a matter of seconds.
  • So close, but yet so far... Benjamin Franklin advocated for a turkey to be the national bird, not the bald eagle! Learn more about this interesting historical fact here.
