Soaring to Excellence

Thursday Folders – March 25, 2021

Posted: Mar 25, 2021

Principal’s Corner

It is hard to believe it is already Spring Break – a week when we will get to enjoy a bit of time to rest and recharge. I do hope each and every one of you enjoy your time together! When we return, it is back to work to finish this year strong!

We have much to do and, as always, your involvement is needed.
