Keeping it R.E.A.L! Respect + Effort + Attitude= Leadership
From Our Principal...
What a whirlwind this year has been! Our students have grown in so many ways, and I look forward to continuing to watch their growth as the years continue. You can be proud of your children for reaching for their goals, working hard to learn and grow, and for becoming supportive, problem solving, character driven young people. We are so blessed to work with these sweet personalities.
The PTA threw a BEAUTIFUL teacher appreciation week for us. We are so very thankful for each of you!! Thank you to our community for being such a great support in every way for our students, staff, and each other.
I hope you received our note about Volunteer Appreciation being held on Field Day. There will be snacks and beverages (and cool down, escape space) in the media center in honor of all you do for us throughout the year this Friday, May 13 throughout the day.
Finally, there will be one last newsletter sent out next week, with the teaching assignment changes, reminders for summer programs, and next year information.
