Boone School Family Newsletter
June 2015 Online Edition
Dear Families and Friends of Boone School,
It has been an outstanding school year full of new learning, growth, and fun! Along with all the celebration and anticipation of summer, June also brings out those bittersweet moments of thanks and goodbyes for those who will be leaving Boone School. I’d like to take this opportunity to give a fond farewell to our outgoing 8th graders--you have been a wonderful group of students to work with over these past three years since I have been at Boone, and you truly will be missed! I wish you all the best in your future, and look forward to seeing you come back and visit us.
I would also like to extend well wishes and thanks to our staff who will be retiring this year. Engineer Jim Bickford, Teacher Assistant Dena Arkis, and Social Worker Kitty Shanahan all have served Boone well for many years, and we appreciate all your hard work and dedication to the Boone community. Best wishes, and thank you!
To all students, please be safe over the summer and enjoy your time off with family and friends. We hope to see you all in August as we host “Registration Days” on August 25, 26, and 27 for all families who will be returning to Boone for the 2015-2016 school year. We request that all families attend one of these days in order to complete required forms and receive your students’ new homeroom numbers.
Thanks everyone for a great year, and have a happy summer!
