The Fourth Quarter

Greetings Grizzly Families,

It's hard to believe we are already in the final quarter of the school year! Looking back, this strange year has been full of wonderful experiences and lots of learning. Thank you for joining us in supporting your students through a learning journey that has looked very different this year. It's because of our great community and support that we can remain a great school!

As we get closer to summer break, naturally, student motivation can begin to decline. Thank you for your assistance in encouraging students to finish strong! While the weather is nicer and it's easier to divert our attention away from school- this is often where learning is solidified and students make the most progress.

Thank you for your continued partnership! As always, it's a privilege to serve our amazing Garwood community.
