Ms. Daws Memo
Dear Marina Families,

We are back and very excited to see everyone on Monday….
The faculty has been meeting, planning and fixing up classrooms all this week in anticipation of our opening on Monday, the 19th at 9:05 a.m.

A construction update: I would love to say that we are finished but we are not. The retro fit portion of the project will be completed by the end of September according to the architects. It will not affect classroom use as it is actually on the outside of the building. It will affect the auditorium for two weeks toward the end of September. We will begin the Bond construction next year and as those details are clarified, I will let you know more.
Come say hello and see our wonderful new graphic in the front entrance while you are here.

Look for little things all year with #marinamagic…
Welcome back
Ginny Daws, Principal
