Week Of December 13, 2015

From the Executive Director-Mr. Lusk

Thank you, Spruce Feeder Pattern!

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of the administrators, teachers and staff of the Spruce feeder pattern for a very productive first semester. We all worked very hard to provide the best education possible to our scholars. I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to express my appreciation. There have been many acts which I have publicly noted; others that have not been seen. What ever the case may be, I thank each and every employee serving our scholars in Pleasant Grove. We are making the difference we signed up for. Have a restful and enjoyable holiday season!
