Matunuck Morning Memo

Manta Rays' News Waves 1/10/15

Faculty and Staff,


Thank you for your generosity and kindness last week! The baby shower was above and beyond and I am truly overwhelmed with gratitude. I feel fortunate to be a part of such a positive and uplifting school community. Thank you.


Unfortunately, this weekend, I was placed on bed rest until delivery. I am working to tie up loose ends and ensure that a smooth transition is put in place. It is reassuring to know that your professionalism and your daily work will continue without disruption. As soon as I have more concrete information I will pass it along.


Please do not hesitate to email or call me with questions or concerns.


Best,

Liz
