Principal’s Message:

Thanks to all of our wonderful parents and families for the delicious treats, lunch, notes, cards, gifts, etc. throughout staff appreciation week. We were overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. Please keep this newsletter handy and mark your calendars because we have so many things happening in our last days of school! Thanks for a wonderful 2017-2018 school year. This will likely be the last school newsletter for the year.
