Principal's Message

Can you believe we only have 3 more weeks until spring break? This is a time of year where we need to push extra hard, but remember a break is coming soon. I learned a few things in my principal's meeting yesterday. The state is still working on approving either a 5% salary increase or a standard $3,000 increase for all staff members. We are hoping that this passes. Also, contracts will be sent out electronically on April 17th. If you have any changes in plans for next year, please try to let me know as soon as possible. Thank you for all you do an have a great weekend!



Sincerely,

Adam
