First, I want to extend congratulations and well wishes to our Primary principal, Dianne Shaffer. Mrs. Shaffer will be retiring at the end of December. I want to thank Mrs. Shaffer for all the years that she has devoted to helping the students, staff, parents, and communities. While she will be greatly missed, we wish her well in her new adventure!!
This is going to be a busy week! There will be some type of event or activity everyday this week. Before we get to This Week, check out the videos on the district’s YouTube channel of the Christmas Concert from last Thursday night. All three bands should be on our channel by mid-morning.
