Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving. I hope you had your fill of turkey and were able to connect with family, whether it was in person, on the phone, or virtually!


Last week saw our school participate in "Read In Week", Cross Country city and zone championships, and numerous activities that prepared us for Thanksgiving. As always, our students represented us with poise and the leadership skills that we expect, and gave us all a reason to be thankful for each of them as members of our school community. Students and staff were all ready for this first milestone holiday of the school year. Some of the first major assessments were done this past week, and the long weekend was a welcome extended break to give everyone the chance to rest and recharge.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Ken Wlos

Principal
