Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members:
It is June and the end of the year approaches with excitement. There is a lot happening and we thank you for trusting us with the education of the children in this community again this year. Based on the events I have attended, this group is the best group of students ever. Several updates and information follows. I apologize for the length of this newsletter. We have a lot of great information to share.
