NOTES FROM THE PRINCIPAL
As we approach the end of the school year, it is important for us to reflect on the year that has passed. To grow as educators and as individuals, it is important to look back on the school year so that we know what we can do better in the future. So while you are enjoying time with your children this summer, we will be busy planning for next year!
Have a great summer and we will look forward to our coming school year!
