Greetings Parents, Guardians, and School Community!

The end of another school year provides us with time to reflect, celebrate, recognize, and to say goodbye.  As school comes to an end, I would like to sincerely thank our students, parents, and staff for making this past year productive and successful. Throughout May and June, we have many exciting learning experiences planned and school trips.  I hope everyone can take some time this summer to relax, rejuvenate, and reflect on our many achievements.  For our 5th Grade Graduating Class, the end of the year means new beginnings.

They will continue to celebrate learning in middle school, this fall.  Congratulations!  We wish them well as they embark on this new journey in their life.  Again, thank you and I look forward to planning, working, and achieving great successes for our students in the fall with you.
