You Made It!

As the years roll by changes are evident everywhere. It has been 11 years, cherish the great memories with your classmates, friends, and that we are blessed beyond measure with the quality of facilities and wonderful teachers with whom you get to learn each day. Attending each new day to discover new things. From Kindergarten 1 through 5th grade, you enjoyed creating, designing, and integrating iPad technology, along with other forms of technology, into your learning. We read an incredible amount of you read, the more you learn, the more your mind is stretched, and the and is enriched. So, enjoy reading lots of good books! fresh air and get some exercise with your friends. Run around, ride a bike, and enjoy hiking and being in the great outdoors! What a great to learn something. Be curious, be creative, be concerned about others


s you.

Remember all of the students who have moved over the years. As well, I would like to call your attention to all of the teachers who have years. Remember to thank your teachers for all that they taught you this year. Wish them well, and tuck away in your heart some fond memories of your time learning together.
