PRINCIPAL:                

A fabulous week last week for both learning and AQI! Thanks to all those that helped out supporting classes while some staff were in workshops here or off campus. This is an important aspect of good schools, it does require us to be more flexible to ensure learning is minimally impacted, I appreciate everyone's flexibility. We have more opportunities in the coming weeks please keep an eye on the calendar. I will be away on Friday this week, I’ll communicate point people later in the week.
