Summer Plans?

I hope you all have a great summer planned. The kids are working hard to finish strong. So are the teachers. I have enjoyed learning about the culture and customs of the Kasilof area. Next year I will hit the ground running because I will know about Turkey Raffles, Trunk or Treats, Cash Raffles, Salmon Celebrations, and so much more.



I have had the pleasure of reviewing the current SBA scores and I am sure you will be quite proud of the work your kids and the teachers have done to score so highly. I will let individual teacher report to parents first and then I will send out our overall information in August. We have areas to improve in for sure, but you will see this is a high performing school.



Please take a moment to complete the survey that is linked to the bottom of this newsletter. We will be laying a lot of reconfiguration groundwork this summer and your input is vital.



You may get emails from me throughout the summer if there is a need to communicate early but you certainly will be hearing from me in August as we get ready to fire up the school again. Until then, "Thank you," for allowing me to spend time with your valuable children and for welcoming my wife and I to the Kasilof community. It is our honor to be here.



Happy summer,



Doug Hayman
