Dear Parents and Guardians, we have had a very full year by all. I want to thank you for adhering to the Covid protocols this year. We could not have kept our school safe without you.


I pray that God will keep you and your family safe this summer. I pray that as we move from protection mode to connection mode that old and new friendships for you and your family will blossom this summer.


Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Mrs. Antoniuk
