From the Desk of the Principal:

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As we approach the end of the school year, we will continue to focus on teaching and learning. Please make sure your child attends school and is on time.

A special thank you to our PTO officers and members for the excellent job done in planning our annual Bingo/Silent Auction/ Art Show. Thank you to our teachers and staff. Students, parents, grandparents, guardians and guest all had a great time.

I’d like to thank you all for your continued support of our school. I have enjoyed meeting and talking with so many of you this school year. Our family nights have been extremely well-attended. Without us working together we couldn’t have achieved so much this school year.

Please look for information to come home soon concerning our volunteer luncheon that will be held on Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
