Mr. Allee's January Newsletter

Hello Gophers!

What a great finish to the semester, which seemed to fly by. Some of the great things that took place were the three K-2 choir events, the co-orchestra concert with Anthem, and the band concert at  Florence High School. It is great to see the progress of our kids over the semester and it is an example to the students how hard work pays off, plus they get to showcase their talent.

Our special event was the classroom competition to collect donations. The school raised over $400 which were given to two local food banks. The winning classrooms were Mrs. Katie Bradeen and Mr. Jerry Ysagguirre. We had an assembly for each floor and the teachers reward was pie in the face. It was a lot of fun for all.

We closed out the semester with the benchmarks. The attendance was great and the kids were on task. We will use the benchmarks to plan for additional support or enrichment as needed by the students. I really appreciate how our teachers approach benchmarks. They work to prepare the kids, but they do so in a positive manner.

I am excited for the second semester. We have a great staff here and  expect all to come together again for the kids in 2015.    

Go Gophers, 

John Allee
Principal
