MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Cory Families,

I want to thank all the families who came out and supported the Cory/Merrill/C3 bond meeting to share ideas, hopes and dreams for our shared campus.  There are many opportunities for families to engage in this work through design workshops.  As I get more information about the design workshops, I will send that communication to families so we can have Cory’s voice at the table.  We look forward to this process.  

Next Tuesday-Thursday (April 16-18) are the final days of grade-wide CMAS testing.  3rd & 4th grades will be testing in the morning and 5th in the afternoon. We are at the final stretch and excited to get back into our routine. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the change in weather.

Best,

Joan Wieser
