Principal's Message

Hello again,
          I cannot believe it is already October. It feels like our school year is completely underway now and we are getting into the flow of things. By the time you read this our annual Panther Prowl will be completed. The students are really excited for the day and their excitement is contagious. A big thanks to all of our parents and staff that have worked so hard to make this happen. We are looking forward to our International Walk and Roll to School Day, the Fall Festival next Saturday and  of course the Halloween Parade. I am still not sure what my costume will be but I have been informed that I am supposed to lead the parade and I am looking forward to the unique experience. 
    In addition, Make a Difference Day will be on the 25th and we will be holding  Red Ribbon week the last week of October as we lead up to Halloween. 
   As you know, none of these events would be possible without our wonderful PTA organization and volunteers. Thanks to everyone for the time and effort you are putting into making our school a great place to be. 
    In my opinion, Fall is one of the best seasons of all and October 2014 will be a very memorable month. 
   Thanks again to all of you for your support of our school and of your children's education. 
   Please do not hesitate to stop by, email, or call if you need anything from me or our Assistant Principal, Johanna Cho. 
Best Regards,
Kade Petersen
