A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL


Dear Cragmont Families,


I would like to take this opportunity, in our last Dragon Tales for the year, to thank students, parents and teachers who have worked so hard this school year. I never cease to be amazed by how diligently students work to learn, families work to support their students and community, and teachers work to educate our students. These efforts pay off in the most important way, improving outcomes for our students.


I also want to acknowledge our departing PTA President, Pamela Melvin. Pamela has volunteered countless hours collaborating with families and staff, planning events, running PTA meetings, and the numerous other PTA president responsibilities. She has been positive and gracious throughout her term of office. Thanks also to the previous PTA Board Members for your dedicated work.


And, welcome to the new PTA president, James Na. Thanks for stepping up and agreeing to take on this important position.


Sincerely,


Michelle Sinclair,

Principal
