END OF YEAR MESSAGE

Dear Keizer Families,


We have officially made it to the end of the school year. We want to extend our gratitude to you, as you have been a great support for students, teachers and all Keizer staff. We know it has been a difficult year, but regardless, as a community, we have been able to accomplish so much.


We hope to end the last couple weeks of school with a bang! Enjoy your summer break and be safe!
