Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members:
It is hard to believe, but we are at an end of another school year. I finally realized it when I looked out my window and saw the inflatable toy going up on the Purdy playground in anticipation of field day. It is just another of those year-end activities that help us celebrate the great year and reward the progress our students have made. The last few weeks are always a bit hectic with moving-on ceremonies and graduations. I attended the three high school and the Community Transition Program graduations. We have much to be proud of as our students take the next step. Thanks to our generous community, our high school students received thousands of dollars in scholarships to help offset the cost of higher education. This is an exceptional graduating class and our future is in good hands.
In preparation for the first day of school, less than 80 days away, here are a few informational items:
