Spring Is Here!
Welcome to Spring Break 2022, Falcons! When we come back the final 10 week countdown will begin. There are a ton of exciting experiences on the horizon. On May 4th, our mural team will begin the painting on the library façade. ArtReach even offered to repaint the concrete in the outdoor reading space underneath the trees right outside the library for free! The official ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony will take place the next week on the 11th. Time TBD.
We also have a very important staff meeting scheduled the first week back. In this meeting, our team will start planning the Spring Open House event. New health and safety guidance allows us to hold this event with families and students on campus! Stay tuned for an official time and date to be announced in April 8th's Falcon Flyer.
Our students will be recognized for their philanthropic efforts with the Kids Heart Challenge during an all-school assembly on April 20th. We completely obliterated our fundraising goal. The top fundraisers will get to make Mr. Friedenberg into an ice cream sundae. Ms. Massion and Mrs. Sperry's classes get to enjoy a dance party at lunch that day too for being the top two classes.
Thank you all for a wonderful year so far, and the best is yet to come.
“More than anything,
Go at it. Go at it. Go at it."
