To our 5th grade class, I am so proud of your accomplishments this year. You've had one of the most significant challenges anyone could imagine but you overcame it with maturity and self-determination. You have my admiration, respect, and appreciation. I can not wait to see your success in middle school and in life!

Finally, I want to express how proud of the way our students, families, and staff have responded to the adversity we have faced. We are truly grateful for your resilience, persistence, and support! We will make sure to communicate additional updates via email or on our district website as they are made available to us.

Enjoy your summer and please let me know if I can be of any assistance!

Best regards,

Melodee Hoffner, Principal
