    Dear Primary Parents:

    Thanks for a solid first trimester to our year!! Nothing is perfect, but with your help we’ve managed to organize 564 students into their daily schedules, deliver instruction, and facilitate learning for about twelve weeks [as of Friday, November 6th]. Parents and Central staff truly collaborate as the transportation, supervision, instruction/learning, food service, etc. get established at the outset of the school year. We look forward to seeing parents at fall parent-teacher conferences (November 12 & 13) and wish everyone a joyful Holiday season as we move into November and December. THANK YOU!

    --Brett Lawless, Primary Principal
