That’s a wrap! We have loved seeing all of the progress your children have made this year - we have so much to celebrate! Congratulations to our 6th graders, today we celebrated each and every one of them during the Promotion Ceremony! We will miss them as they transition on to middle school next year.
Thank you to the many volunteers who made this week so much fun! We had another fabulous Battle of the Books thanks to Mrs. Cole and Mrs. Roth, we had fun class parties, an amazing 6th grade party, and an impressive showing of talent during the Variety Show!
Thank you to Keith Hall who joined us for the last four weeks of the school year. Dr. Mitchell appreciates all of the love and positive thoughts you all have been sending her way. Her babies continue to get stronger every day!
