a note from the principal

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend despite the gloomy Sunday weather.

Next week, May 8-12, is teacher appreciation week and I can't let this week arrive without acknowledging how grateful I am to work with such a wonderful group of educators who give their best to our students each and every day. Please see below for all the fun festivities the PTA has planned for our staff.

Book Fair:

Thanks to all the PTA volunteers who helped make the book fair such as success—and a big thank you to Ms. Hartley and Ms. Keeler for all they did to make it happen! We are so grateful for their efforts and heard from many parents and students how much they enjoyed shopping.
