Week of May 1st
Message from Principal Drew...
There is an old saying that April showers bring May flowers. This reminds me that now is the time for our students to bloom and reach for their very best as we only have 28 days to the beginning of final exams and 33 days until graduation. Students if you are missing work do not delay in getting it completed and turned into your teachers so your grade reflects your ability. Time is running out.
Parents we are looking for parents interested in serving as a parent representative on our school improvement team. We have a parent rotating off of the team at the end of the school year and are looking for someone focused on the growth of our school to serve all students at the best of our ability to join us in our journey. If you are interested please contact Mr. Drew or any School Improvement Team member.
Congratulations to our Hunter Safety team on their performance this weekend at their State Competition. The sacrifice to practice on Saturday mornings since the Fall was well worth the time spent to realize your goals this past weekend. We are proud of each of you and look forward to even greater success in the future.
