Dear Parents and Guardians,

As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for your support, good wishes, and yummy treats in honor of our amazing teachers! Thank you also for your ongoing involvement in your child's education. Your encouragement makes a significant difference in their growth at school. Together, we can continue to inspire our students to reach their full potential.

As we approach the end of the school year, we want to remind you that your child may have upcoming assessments, such as MAP testing and other projects. Encourage them to do their best to finish the year on a strong note. This will help ensure a smooth transition to the next grade level.

Wishing you a wonderful month of May!

Dr. Szczasny
