Please remember to return your ballot for the open McKinley Foundation seat. The deadline is Monday, June 10th.
After a combined 78 years of teaching, Ms. Stephenson and Mr. Pike are retiring. YEAH for them, but very sad for all of us. On Monday, please have your child wear a Hawaiian shirt (if they have one) and shorts to honor Mr. Pike, and if you or one of your children has had either teacher, please have them write a note to say thank you and what they remember most about them. We will be presenting them with apple trees and will be hanging the notes on the trees. If you can attach the note to some string so we can tie it on the tree, that would be great!
