Principal's Message

Dear Noddin Community,

It has been a wonderful first trimester of school with the students, full-time and in-person. Everyday, I continue to see how happy they are to be with their teachers and friends as they participate in their learning and projects.

In this season of thanks, I am filled with gratitude to be a part of this amazing community. I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving and provides time to spend with family and friends, something that's been so missed these past two years.
