New Year Greeting from the Principal

Happy New Year

  C:\Users\Mr Yelverton\Downloads\EWE1.jpg

Happy New Year! I would like to extend best wishes to you all for a happy and healthy new year. It’s a pleasure to see all of our children, teachers and staff back at school after a long, well deserved break. I love the new year and the opportunity that January always provides each of us to take some time and reflect on our lives and recommit to making changes and being better versions of ourselves. We have just embarked on not only a new year but a new decade. Let’s expect the best from each other in 2020 and show our Warrior PRIDE! We will continue to model a "BULLY FREE SCHOOL ZONE" and show in a world where you can be anything, being KIND never fails.

Just a reminder that as the temperature begins to dip, remember to dress warmly. Coats, hats, mittens/gloves, and boots are essential this time of year to wear to school and when playing outside during recess. Thank you and welcome back.
