A message from me...
I hope my message finds you well and you have had a great start to your summer! I have been enjoying a slightly slower pace and getting to catch up on many projects that didn't quite get done this past year ; ) While I am enjoying my time off, I do miss our students and staff. They bring life to the building and I look forward to early August when the activity begins to pick up.
As the calendar turns to July and we head into this July 4th weekend, I do like to send an update with some information to frontload you as we move closer to the start of school. I will likely send a couple of more updates prior to Aug. 2nd and then begin my weekly communications starting Aug. 6th.
I would like to welcome all of our new Jerome families reading this communication for the first time. We are truly excited for you to be a Celtic and I look forward to meeting you all in person very soon!
Below you will find some updates about a variety of items that may be relevant to you. Some are district-related and some are building specific. I would invite you to take some time to review and if you have questions please feel free to reach out to us.
I hope that you all have an enjoyable 4th of July weekend and I will be seeing you all very soon!
