FROM THE PRINCIPAL

It’s hard to believe that it is the end of another school year!  With three weeks to go, I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the staff to our parents.  We are lucky to be working with such supportive families.  It is a strong partnership between home and school that helps our students experience success at school.  We appreciate your support.  Wishing you a wonderful, happy, restful summer vacation!

Report cards will be mailed home over the PD days during the last week of June.  In that package, you will also receive information about school supplies for next year and the 19-20 school calendar. Start date is August 29th!  K4 and K5 families, you will be receiving a special letter detailing your child’s staggered entry to school in mid-August.
