Principal's Message

It is difficult to believe that it is June already and the school year is coming to a close. We started the year in August knowing that this year would be like no other year we ever experienced. We all, as a team, worked through virtual learning, hybrid learning, technical issues, virtual; book fairs, virtual community meetings, text messages from teachers and administrators, and different schedules. It was absolutely the year of flexibility! Together, as a community, we made it through this special year, and now we can all say that we lived through the pandemic year!

June is a short but busy month. Please take a moment to read through this newsletter to information, but please feel free to contact the office if you need clarification. It has been such a pleasure to meet all of you and your children this year. It has been an honor to serve you as your principal, and I look forward to serving you next year as well.
