Mr. Posick's Friday Thoughts

June 7, 2013

Celebration Day!

Today was Celebration Day, a day that the students and staff celebrate a great year by being outside, physically active, and enjoying a fun-filled day with our friends. An undertaking such as this cannot be done without the leadership of some great people. I would like to personally thank Mr. Pomeroy, Miss Luberda, Mrs. Monson, and Mrs. Bradley for their tireless efforts in preparing for the day. Thanks to Mr. Netteshiem and our custodial crew for their invaluable assistance. Thanks to Mrs. Jewel and our lunch staff for accommodating us with our ever-changing plans for lunch hours. Last, but not least, thanks to the parent volunteers who are always more than willing to help us out with anything we might need.
