Our theme this year is “Leading the P.A.C.K. with Pride, Achievement, Creativity, and Kindness.” Each month, we will recognize students from each of our grade levels who are exemplifying Worcester pride, achievement, creativity and kindness.

Additionally, they will be recognized by having their picture displayed on the monitor in the front lobby of our school and on our school website. We congratulate the following “Leaders of the P.A.C.K.” for the month of February:
