Where Learning Comes First
Dear Head Community,
The Talent Show was a blast! Seeing our families come together to honor our students' talents was my favorite part! I want to thank Stephanie Richter and Kelly Mraz for all their efforts behind the scenes. There would be no talent show without them!
We are gearing up for next week's parent/teacher conferences. Please make sure you have made an appointment with your child's teacher and let him/her know if you would like the conference in person or virtually. As a reminder, we will not be permitting parents to eat lunch at school on March 1st or 2nd due to our many schedule changes.
Have a wonderful weekend!
