School's out for summer

Yes, it's that time of year again - summer vacation! I wish all students, teachers and administrators a wonderful summer off as yet another school year comes to a close.

Best wishes to all those students who are moving on to middle or high school and congratulations to all those high school and college graduates on a job well done!

I hope you all enjoy a well-deserved break and have a wonderful and safe summer!

Thank you, Fountaindale parents!

Fountaindale's Amy Valentine-Walker called the other evening with a huge thank you to send out to all of the Fountaindale parent volunteers who helped with the Beach Bash held at the school on May 24 - thanks for all the wonderful things you do for Fountaindale!

Congratulations, dancers and Mrs. Flurie, for truly wonderful performances enjoyed by all in attendance!
