Dear KRS Families,

Thank you to KRS teacher Miss Bihuniak for planning and facilitating a fantastic International Week! Great thanks to the students and their families who presented to the students and staff during the International Day on Tuesday!

Tomorrow, I will be at the Hartley Dodge building with KRS student poets to participate in the Madison annual Arbor Day ceremony. The community celebration highlights elementary student performers and town community members. If weather permits, KRS parents will also be beautifying the KRS grounds. Thank you in advance to our KRS parent volunteers! What a wonderful way to end the month of April and begin the month of May!

Have a fantastic weekend!
