Message from Mrs. Richardson

Dear York Avenue Families,


I can't believe it's October already! Time flies when you're having fun!


I came across this infographic that serves as a reminder about the importance of connection, patience and understanding. As parents, we know this to be true but seeing the infographic in writing makes it all the more jarring.


Our students are small but mighty! Your children are resilient, smart, fun, funny and kind individuals. I enjoy spending my days with them.


Enjoy the first weekend in October!


Warmly,


Dipa P. Richardson

Principal
