I want to give a very big "THANK YOU" to Ms. Rohde, Ms. Toliver, Ms. Morrison, and Mrs. Naig for helping out with UIL this year.  Without their hard work, I would not have been able to pull all of this together, and our students would not have been so successful!  Thank you!
Also, thank you for all of your support, Ms. Escanilla!
