FROM THE PRINCIPAL
the school year comes to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim.
It’s been a great year! Together we’ve
learned much and shared experiences that will long remain with us in the years
to come. The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our
school a wonderful place of learning for our children primarily but for all of
us makes Masters truly a special place. Special
thanks to all of you who have contributed in ways small, large and
unimaginable! Reading with your child
every night, attending and participating on field trips, helping with school
book fairs, providing food and/or organizing lunches for teachers, organizing
events, working at these events, showing up to support your children, serving
on committees, sharing your talents, helping with traffic, picking up trash,
brainstorming the “what ifs”… supporting our work in countless ways and
providing the resources to do what we dream and know is good for children.
Thanks for getting your kids to school on time each day, for kind notes of
encouragement that mean so much, for sending your kids with healthy lunches
obviously packed with love, for making sure homework gets done… and turned in.
Thank you for providing rich and engaging, well-rounded experiences for your
children and knowing that education is about joy, wonder and fostering
curiosity, along with the development of social skills so needed to succeed.
For these, and a million other things, we are truly grateful! For your calendaring pleasure, the first day
of school begins on Wednesday, August 17th! Safe Walk to School Night is
Monday, August 15th. Until
then, enjoy a restful and replenishing summer with your families!
