A Message from the Principal
Thank you so much to all of the parents who stepped up to run for site council. We all appreciate your willingness to commit you time. After reviewing the votes in a very close race, I am pleased to announce that Mary Ellen Glynn and James Loveland will be representing the parent voice on the council. Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to vote.
At the last community meeting we had a discussion about what instruction in technology will look like in the coming year. We wanted to share the technology plan that staff has been working on this spring. The latest draft of the plan is posted on our school website www.pps.k12.or.us/schools/abernethy/. We are continuing to refine and clarify the items in the matrix so know that there will be changes.
We cannot tell you how much we appreciate our amazing volunteers. I have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have dedicated their time and energy to pull off not only the big events of the year, but also the routine acts of helping all of the teachers on a weekly basis. As a staff we would like to take the opportunity to say thank you. If you have volunteered this year for any of the big events or in the classroom, please join us on Monday, June 2nd from 3:15 to 4:00 in the cafeteria for a small celebration.
The fifth grade team will be sending out details about promotion activities soon. I was asked to make sure you have 2pm on Wednesday, June 11th saved on your calendar. It is so hard to believe that we are mere weeks away from the end of the school.
