***For this meeting you will find a 2-sided document from St. John’s University that will be reviewed on Tuesday. Please hold onto it, as it contains important information and expectations for graduation.
We are looking forward to seeing as many families as possible next week. This is an exciting time for the students and all of us. We look forward to celebrating these final milestones with them and you before we send them off to high school.
And if through all these events, I do not get the chance to speak with you personally, let me say now, thank you for trusting us with your children, I have enjoyed these past three years with them, and they will be missed.
Kelly L. Barton.
