A Week of Making Good Choices

October 26-30, 2020

Please join us in celebrating “​A Week of Making Good Choices,​” from October 26-30, 2020, in recognition of ​School Violence Awareness Week​ and ​National​ ​Red Ribbon Week. School culture consists of the related factors of attitude, feeling, and behavior of individuals. Angelo L. Tomaso School will be encouraging students to positively handle conflicts and resolve problems peacefully, in line with our district-wide Character Education Program. Our goal is to continue to encourage a positive climate for all members of our school community.


In addition, we will promote School Spirit Days with a different theme and positive message each day, throughout the “​Week of Making Good Choices.”​ The Spirit Days schedule is attached. Please encourage your child to participate and emphasize each theme. Thank you for your ongoing support!!
