Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This year, more than ever before, you have put your trust in us to keep your child safe. We have all worked together to provide a healthy learning environment by following all the health protocols.

Thank you for having your child ready to learn from home or school.

Thank you for the support you have given my staff members during this unprecedented time.

More than anything, thank you for allowing us to love and teach your child!

I hope everyone has a holiday season full of peace, joy, and love!

We will see you on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Kim Kimberling
