Good afternoon,

The students have left for April vacation! If you have plans for the week, I hope they’re fun and joyful! My family and I will be sticking close to home. I am looking forward to catching up on some sleep this week and hopefully doing some fun stuff outside! When I came home from school on Monday, I walked into the house to one of my three daughters who said, “Hi.” While hanging up my school bag and coat, I responded without thinking, “Good morning.” The three of them thought that was pretty hilarious! “Good morning” is my standard greeting when kids get out of their families’ cars each morning. I think I must say “Good morning” between 75 and 100 times within a half hour. I’m often responding to “Hi,” so this trigger worked even at home…I’m hoping a few days away from RJ Grey will reset that auto-response!

Many of you probably saw the announcement from the district that I was selected to continue in my role as Principal at RJ Grey. I am very happy to be given the opportunity to continue working with some really great teachers and some really great kids from some really great families. RJ Grey has been my home for ten years and I still get excited to start my work each morning. Thank you for all of your well wishes over the past few days - I really appreciate them!
