It's Great To Connect With You Again!
It is hard to believe that this is the last newsletter of the year! This has been a school year like no other, as we have experienced our return from Covid protocols and re-learned how to connect with one another.
I want to thank all of you for your support this year and over the three years that I was fortunate enough to work in this building as an administrator. Through good and tough times, our house remained strong.
As we approach the summer break, please take time to reflect and be thankful on the journey we have had and enjoy spending time with loved ones.
Take good care, everyone!
