    This week started off with a couple of great learning experiences.  The students have been buzzing with excitement about their experiences viewing the solar eclipse.  Upon their return to school, all students were engaged with the daily announcements by listening to me read the book, Just Ask by Sonia Sotomayor.  We spent time talking about how we can “just ask” questions that we are wondering about - celebrating our differences.

    Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had an amazing spring break filled with fun and relaxation. It's great to see all our students returning with smiles and stories to share - even if we arrived in the middle of a monsoon! This last quarter is one of my favorites because we really see students flourish and shine. There are also many opportunities for parents to volunteer and see firsthand how impressive our Hance family is.

    As we approach the much-needed Spring Break, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and partnership throughout this school year. Together, we've navigated challenges and celebrated triumphs, always with the best interest of our students at heart. As your principal, I understand the importance of rest and rejuvenation, not just for our children but for you as well.

    With only one week to go before spring break, I want to remind everyone of our Planet Aid bin.  As you go through spring cleaning, please remember to recycle any clothing or textiles that you may have.

    Thank you for making Open House so successful. My favorite part is always seeing the PRide in our students’ faces as they show their guests around the school. We practiced how to do introductions on the announcements so it was great to “meet” so many of you.
