From The Principal's Desk 

Dear Blossom Hill Families:

We hope you are able to join us for our Family Picnic this Friday, May 13th from 11:30am to 12:25pm. Bring your picnic blanket and lunch (and some sunscreen) and spread out on the field to enjoy the sunshine and a relaxed lunch with your children and other parents. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with your parent friends. Please be sure to sign in first at the main gate in front of the office to receive a visitor's badge. Students will go back to class at 12:25pm to finish out the school day.

"Hive" Five for Mrs. Adams

Hive Five and thank you to everyone who helped make Cindy Adams' retirement celebration so special! Thank you to Julie Reynolds, Michelle Avlas, Jean Choi, Elke Billingsley, Widya Winoto, Kristin Hutchinson, and Ting Engelman for decorations and treats. Special thanks to the kindergarten staff and students for their singing performance and to Amy Gregor and Michele Avlas for organizing the 2019 Honeybee Choir reunion. Allowing Cindy Adams one last chance to lead our students in song was magical. Thank you to Mrs. Reynolds and Mr. Agustin Garcia for help with facilities and equipment. Finally, Mrs. Cindy Adams, thank you for everything that you do; we will cherish all of the memories. Because of you, it is truly a “Wonderful World.”
