A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 04/03/2022

Dear Central Road Families,

It was amazing having both students and staff back in our building this week after a break from school. We were excited to jump back into both teaching and learning. It is hard to believe that we only have a few more months of school left. We look forward to enjoying every moment together as we begin wrapping up our 21-22 school year. We know both April and May be filled with great learning and memories for all!

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our Central Road community! We truly appreciate it.

Kindest Regards,

Joanna Shostachuk

It is easy to participate in this much-appreciated TEACHER TRIBUTE PROGRAM.

As we enter the 2nd half of the school year, I invite you to take notice of the things you see your child's teacher do, hear your child's teacher say, or the things you hear your child gush with excitement about related to their teacher. We've included this simple form for you to submit should you feel so inclined to do so. Children in full day school spend more of their waking day with their teacher than they do with their parents. We thank you for entrusting your child with us! This has been a good school year and your kind words mean more than you know!

Thank A Teacher Link
