Boone School Family Newsletter
June 2016 Online Edition
Dear Families and Friends of Boone School,
With just 15 school days left to go in June, summer vacation is almost here! It has been a great year of learning and growth, and I appreciate every day I have had the opportunity to work with all of you.
Throughout this year, our school community has focused on the message “Work hard and be Kind.” As another school year comes to an end, I invite us all to reflect once again on these words and how they have helped us grow. How will you work hard and be kind over summer vacation? I hope you will carry this message with you wherever your summer takes you!

Boone Show: Peter Pan Adventures in Neverland
Come see the classic tale of Peter Pan--one of the greatest children's stories in Western literature. Travel along with Peter Pan on his mighty adventures in the magical world of fantasy and play. Enjoy the journey of the "Kid Who Never Wanted to Grow Up" as he takes Wendy, Micheal, and John Darling to the make believe world of Neverland. There you'll meet a cast of fantastical characters that challenge Peter Pan to overcome his fears. See how Peter, the Lost Boys, and the Mighty Rebels come together to defeat the evil Captain Hook and his band of Pirate Raiders. This is truly a wonderful story of friendship, fears, and fighting for that will provide a fun filled evening of excitement for children of all ages.
