Words for this Week from Ms. Keag
Week of March 21, 2016
It's all about learning!
Area Board Meeting
The Fairy Tale Ball was a HUGE success! Thank you to everyone for making this school wide celebration memorable for our first grade students. Whether you cheered them on during the parade, checked in parents, set up the cafe, decorated the school, or dressed up, it was a team effort, and you made it happen for our students! #SuwaneeHasIT! Suwanee has YOU!
Ronda Price, TIffany Hutchinson, Lynn Barnett, Joyce Fico, and Kelley Lorenz for donating their time for Relay for Life. We raised over $270 because they created a Parent's Night Out and our students had a ball. A fun time was had by all!
Mr. Gogo for making "Pups" the most desirable item in our school to put on a key chain. Our students are raising money, having fun, and getting heart healthy. Keep it up!
Kathy Burnette for preparing for our annual audit. We know this is a detailed job and we appreciate your hard work. Thank you very much!
