    Dear Parents & Guardians:

    The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week, therefore, I take this opportunity to thank our teachers for their commitment to the students, especially under these incredibly difficult circumstances.  I also thank you for being patient and stepping up to the plate to keep your children engaged in learning.  Our wonderful PTA put together a heartwarming tribute to the Briggs and Stanlick teachers from their students.  If you haven't seen it, here's the link:
