Dear McNamara School Community Members,
The long anticipated spring has arrived. We are enjoying longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures. We are surrounded by new growth and rejuvenation.
During these spring months we will continue to celebrate our students’ learning and growth. During the morning announcements students have the opportunity to celebrate with all of our students and staff their writing pieces. Celebrating poetry month in April, we listened to first graders read their creative poems welcoming spring and saying goodbye to winter. Some third graders recently shared their persuasive writing letters to Mother Nature, convincing her to bring spring to us. As we look around, Mother Nature responded favorably.
It is hard to believe the end of the school year is quickly approaching. I would like to thank all of you for your continued support during the school year. Our success is dependent on many people. I would like to thank our PTA President, Mrs. Amy Peterson, the PTA Board, committee chairpersons and volunteers for coordinating events and special programs for our students throughout the school year. Your creativity, talents, endless efforts, and commitment to our school are very much appreciated.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Mrs. Jones and Mr. Wallon who will be retiring at the end of June. They each have provided 30 years of instruction and support to students at McNamara. They will be truly missed, we wish them much happiness and all the best.
Mr. Ashworth and Mr. Lewis will be moving to the secondary level where students throughout the district will benefit from their instructional expertise and caring demeanor. Although it is reassuring to know that our students will be reuniting with them at the secondary level, they too will be missed here at McNamara.
I look forward to seeing you during May and June at special events celebrating our students’ successes as they continue to grow and achieve. Please be sure to visit our website for a listing of upcoming events.
Enjoy the spring season!
Mrs. Jane B. Nadolski, Principal
McNamara Elementary School
