Letter from the Principal

Dear Parents and Friends:
When we think of summer, vacations and a multitude of recreational activities come to mind. I ask that you encourage your child to include reading as part of his/her summer activities. This is an ideal time to read for enjoyment and pleasure.  Please consider some of the titles from the summer reading list below.  I wish you and your family a relaxing and enjoyable summer!
