May, 2017

In the good old days we used to say, "April showers bring May flowers!"  This year I think it is really going to happen!   We are looking forward to an exciting and busy month of May.  Speaking of May.....we will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week at the middle school from May 15th through the 19th.  Our staff should be commended for their hard work, effort, and commitment to our students.  We are most fortunate to have such a dedicated team working with your children.  Our PTO has worked to prepare a fun and exciting week for everyone, and I would like to thank them for their efforts as well.
 
Our eighth grade students recently returned from our annual Washington, D.C. trip.  We had a wonderful and positive experience throughout!  I am very proud of our eighth graders, as they handled themselves in a most appropriate manner during the course of the week.  A big thank you to Laura Lambert, administrative assistant at the middle school, for all she does to make this trip happen, year in and year out.  We couldn't do it without her!!   Also, thank you to our teachers, nurses, volunteers and assistants for chaperoning this trip.  We are already planning for next year's excursion!   
As you can see below, May will be quite busy!!
