Mr. Posick's Friday email

It's the little things..., and a #proudprincipal

This Wednesday we had our final student assembly of the year. Here is a link to what was shared. The best part of the assembly was the risk a group of 5th graders took to reach out to the entire school about their passions of books and food for underprivileged children. I am so proud of Lauren, Marin, Emily, Chayse, Allie, Ryanne, and Emerson. I am also proud of the respect and attention the students showed these girls. Three other girls, Alissa, Lucy, and Avery, are also sharing their passions with HAWS and Project Linus. Our students are a real caring bunch.

Staff Appreciation Week

Above are just a few examples of the great support we have received from our families for Staff Appreciation Week. Thanks to the PTO and their organization of the daily events, the staff was treated to lunch, a great framed personalized superhero picture, thank you notes, and desserts. We are so very fortunate to learn in the Merton community.
