Mr. Barker's Bulletin

Thank you to all the parents who were able to make it out to the Back to School Night this week. It was great getting to meet so many of you.

With our first full week of school behind us, I'm confidant that together with you, the parents, and our dedicated teachers and staff, that it's going to be a great year.

A reminder that we don't have school this Monday, September 18 so our teachers can take part in a Professional Development Day.

Enjoy this fall weather and have a great weekend!

Mr. Barker, Principal
