One Somerset: October
We are one month into the school year and our students, your children, make our hearts sing!  It is a delight to greet your young ones each morning as they arrive at school eager to learn.  Ms. Yung and I enjoyed seeing such a great turn out during our grade level curriculum nights.  We truly consider you partners in our day-to-day work educating your children both academically and social-emotionally.

Principal Coffee
Please join me in the library on Friday, October 6 from 8:15-8:50.
