Grade by grade, this week has been packed full of extension projects as well as baseball games, activities, even auctions celebrations. There were final presentations and celebrations, and a whole lot of gardening.
Next week, we will say goodbye to this untypical year starting with our virtual 8th grade continuation, followed up by our Kindergarten Art Walk ,ECE picnic,and even some of our remote students will return to the campus for farewells.. We also will say goodbye to our outgoing PTA President, Aarin McKeel. We can’t thank you enough for your time and dedication over the past two years. Your leadership and contributions have made our community better and we are forever grateful. We thank you and look forward to welcoming our new incoming President Adie Tate this fall .
Enjoy the spring weekend, finally.
