Principal Message 5.22.20


I am so grateful to all of you and our incredible staff for such a successful student material pick up process.  It was smooth sailing throughout, thanks to the prep work of our custodians and staff!  Seeing our wonderful families and the smiles on students’ faces as they waved from the back seat was definitely the highlight! Thank you for signing up and following the safety guidelines.  We truly appreciate it!  

It’s really hard to believe that there are only four more days left in the 2019-2020 school year.  Next week’s learning activities will include activities that provide closure to the school year, as we know that is even more important during this current time.  I hope everyone enjoys the long Memorial Day weekend ahead.  



NEW: No Instruction/Slideshows Monday, May 25th

This is a friendly reminder that there will be no instruction/slideshows on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.

NEW: Last Call for Material Pick Up

Thank you, again, for making our material pick-up process so efficient!  For those of you unable to make the assigned dates and times, June 1st will be the last call for student material pick up.  Between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm, please come to the front of the building.  All remaining student bags will be labeled and organized by teacher.  Please adhere to social distancing guidelines.  All other bags will be kept until the 2020-2021 school year.
