A NOTE FROM DR. CHURCH

Dear Totem Falls Families,


What an amazing week it has been. A HUGE thank you on behalf of all the staff for the royal treatment. From flowers, to food, to generous gift cards; you knocked it out of the park! I want you to know the words written regarding our impact on your child and/or family really touch us deeply. Those reaching out to share a quick note, it really means the world. Our PTO is an amazing group of people who donate an incredible amount of time for events like this, particularly Neva Goodrich and Charlene Garcia this week. We appreciate you too!


Last week the Snohomish School District honored classified employees, recognizing employees from each district facility at the board meeting. I was proud to recognize our custodians Tony Goebel and Randy Wheeler. They have been instrumental in the cleaning and safety procedures this year, particularly in supporting the routines related to our return to school. They have also used their time well in addressing many issues they wouldn’t be able to get to in ordinary times. They are the best!


Sincerely,

-Craig

LOST & FOUND

Warm weather = a growing lost & found. Please encourage your students to check the lost and found, which is by the entrance to the gym, for items they have misplaced. Also, if you label items, we can work on getting it back to the students. Thank you.
