Weekly PTO Newsletter 5/26
With the last day of school having come and gone, we wanted to say thank you to our teachers, staff and our wonderful Principal and Vice Principal for a job well done this year! It was quite a year and it ended on many high notes, too many to name. Through it all the people who work every day inside the walls of our school made it a place of learning, of kindness and respect, of growth, and of fun. Our children are fortunate and we are grateful!
We also want to thank all of the parents and caregivers who showed up all year long to make events and fundraisers happen, who came to support their children in their endeavors, and who cheered from the sidelines as milestones happened and the days passed by. Parents and caregivers are a critical component of the school, and we hope you know you are appreciated for all the things you have done throughout the school year.
Lastly, a heartfelt thank you to Nahed Zehr, our talented, thoughtful, tireless outgoing PTO President. It’s a huge job in a normal year and an extra challenging job in the waning days of a pandemic. Our school has thrived this year under her tremendous leadership and she deserves a huge thank you for a job well done. Thank you, Nahed! You’re the best!
