    Did you know that Principal Maria Lucero knows how to play the saxophone? She started playing the saxophone in elementary school. Her favorite song to play was Hang on Sloopy by the McCoys.
     
    Did you know that Assistant Principal Sydney John likes to wear crazy socks every day at work? Students love to see what socks he's wearing. It's a great way to build relationships with students.
