Principal’s Message

Spring has certainly arrived with the warm weather we were hoping for! During these transition months please make sure all students have an indoor and outdoor pair of shoes.

Please join us for our Family Movie Night on Friday, April 12th at 6 p.m. The movie “Ralph Breaks the Internet” will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Popcorn will be available free of charge. Two tickets will be provided for one water and one slice of pizza. Additional pizza is available for purchase.

The character attribute for the month of April is Honesty. Honesty is defined as the quality of truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness. It is freedom from deceit or fraud. Students can demonstrate honesty at school in the following ways:

  • tell it like it is rather than sugarcoating it
  • think before you speak
  • say what you mean and mean what you say

Here is a quote about Honesty from William Shakespeare. “Honesty is the best policy. If I lose my honor, I lose myself.”

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.

Engage, Inspire, Innovate… Always Learning
