The ViewPoint

June 23, 2020


Falcons, we have come to our final 2019-20 Weekly ViewPoint Newsletter. Yes, summer break is here! As we close the school year we would like to thank you for supporting students and staff during Continuity of Learning. we valued your partnership as we transitioned to a new modality of school and learning. Ending of the school year is hard for us all this year. Typically, we see our students off for the summer by blowing bubbles and waving goodbye from our bus lane/car loop; however, we have been able to engage with students through varies engagement opportunities these last couple of days of school which has been terrific for us as a school community.

As we depart for summer break, I wish you all peace, joy, and health.
