Dear Stingray Families,

Wow! Can you believe this school year is over? What a year it has been! We definitely faced quite a few challenges this year. We have truly missed seeing the faces of our Stingray families during Open House, book fairs, volunteer opportunities, and various fundraisers! Throughout this year though, we have seen so many positive things happen within our school!                        

                                              Principal Letter to Families
                               

               Have A Fun and Safe Summer!
