Message from the Principal

Summer break is just around the corner, but we still have some exciting learning adventures left in this school year!

To ensure a smooth and successful end, we encourage all students to continue following school expectations and routines these last few days. This includes things like:

  • Regular attendance: Being in class allows students to participate fully and avoid missing important information.
  • Completing assignments: Finishing strong demonstrates commitment and helps solidify learning.
  • Following classroom rules: This creates a positive learning environment for everyone.

By working together, we can ensure a fantastic finish to the school year! We appreciate your continued support in helping your child reach their full potential.
