Thank you!

We would like to thank all of our parents and families who attended the fall parent-teacher conferences. We all enjoyed meeting with you and discussing your child's progress so far this year. We look forward to continued growth and the making of fond elementary memories with your child.


We would also like to thank our P.T.O and the volunteers for providing dinners each night. The meals, desserts and drinks were all wonderful and we appreciate your willingness to help our staff feel valued and supported.
