It’s hard to believe that we are a month away from the end of the 20-21 school year. This has certainly been a year like no other for the school and for everyone personally. Many obstacles and changes took place along with the day to day uncertainty of what the next day was going to bring. We accomplished a lot in the face of this adversity and our students were able to be in school five days a week all year long. I’m proud of the contributions everyone made to make this a reality. It is a true testament to the resiliency of our school community.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our winter sports teams, cheerleaders and our coaching staffs for their accomplishments this season. Special recognition is due for our girls basketball team as they won the Division 4 state championship. I would also like to recognize our Drama students for their hard work and commitment to their winter production. Our community has been extremely supportive of our students in all their endeavors. We have so much to be proud of.
Since we are not holding a traditional kindergarten screening this year, it is important that parents register their children with the elementary office if they will be attending kindergarten next year. For your planning, we are now scheduled to have our last day of instruction on Thursday, May 20. Students will be dismissed one hour early on this day. Please also note that the Graduation ceremony for the class of 2021 will be held on Sunday, May at 1:00pm in the high school gymnasium. I am excited for these 80 graduates as they begin a new phase in their lives.
As always, we appreciate the support that our community gives the school system. We would not be a successful school district without this support. Our students continue to excel in all aspects of their educational experiences. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigated this past school year. All in all, it has been a really great year!
