Message from Mrs. White

My family and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving differently this year in order to keep our loved ones and ourselves safe. Still, we have so much to be grateful for!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as your principal. I appreciate our students for their joy for learning and consistent effort, for their smiles for teachers and friends on ZOOM, and their resilience in approaching learning in new ways this year. I appreciate our staff for their commitment to providing the very best learning activities and online environment, for their willingness to support one another as they strive to meet the needs of each and every child, and for their efforts to continue learning themselves. I am so thankful for our wonderful parent community, who partner with us in more direct ways than ever before during this distance learning environment! Thank you for your high expectations for your child's learning and engagement! Our PTA continues to support our school in a variety of ways, and we are so grateful. Every day, it is a joy to work with such amazing students and staff, and to share such positive partnership with our parent community.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.
