A Principal's Perspective
The faculty and family party is tonight! This is a great event where we can fellowship and relax with other staff members and their families. Please come on out and join in the fun beginning at 6:00. Thank you Social Committee for organizing this event for our staff.
Rest? Relax? At the end of the year? What??? With all of the end of year festivities and all of the check list items that need to be done, it can get stressful! Please take care of yourself. Take time to rest, relax and breathe even for a quick minute. Know that others are stressed too so look for ways to reach out, support and even share some much needed grace. Together as a campus, we can put the final touches on this great year.
Be innovative - Design the possibilities!
