As we enter the first weeks of summer, I hope everyone has been able to spend time with friends and family enjoying the lazy days of summer. As I reflect on the past school year, I am grateful for such a supportive school community. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by such faith-filled and dedicated people, students, families, faculty and staff. Each of you are such vital members of our school community and I deeply thank you for sharing in our journey.
All students in Grades K-6 should have received report cards and suggestions for summer review skills on the last day of school. Report cards for students in Grades 7-8 were mailed out last week.
Please make sure that your contact information is current in OptionC, as we will be utilizing this for school communication throughout the summer. We will be sending out a weekly newsletter throughout the summer.
Remember that during the summer months, our office is on reduced hours. Please feel free to call me directly, e-mail me or leave me a message with any questions or concerns you might have. I wish everyone a peaceful and enjoyable summer break.
