Roadrunner Update

May 2022

A note from our principal, Dr. Ayala

The end of this school year is fast approaching and we have a lot of events coming up.

The students have had a lot of fun this year with the Valentines Dance, Fun Run, Easter Egg Hunt, Bowling Field Trip and now our Track and Field Day in May. We appreciate your support when you make donations and come to our events. Our children are still young and we need to make their experience in elementary school a good one! So, thank you for all of your help in making these events happen!

Next year, we will be focusing on academics with lots of enrichment activities incorporated into their learning. We want the children to have hands-on learning experiences such as gardening, science experiments, stargazing and more. Thank you for a great school year!

Looking Back on April...

We are proud to announce we will be having Sixth Grade Graduation on May 25th. We will include a ceremony, awards, BBQ, a slideshow, yearbook and signing. Parents are invited to the ceremony and awards that will be held on our lawn (by the drop off lane). Each student will be asked to donate a specific item to the BBQ. Please be looking out for that list coming soon.

We would like to thank all the parents who donated water, fruit, and ice to track and field. It was an exciting and fun day. Your donations made the day ever more special.

We will be walking to the middle school on May 5th. Please be sure that your student has comfortable walking shoes and sunscreen. Unfortunately parents are not able to join us as the students will be visiting live classes. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Finally, the sixth grade team is proud of the progress your students have made this year. We would like to thank you for sharing your student with us. This truly was a unique year.
