Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am looking forward to this long weekend. Scott (my brother-in- law), Maggie (my niece) and I will be spending Saturday on the Saco River fly fishing with a guide. It was my Christmas present from them. As a child, my family camped for the summer at Saco River Campground. I have fond memories of camping, swimming and tubing down the Saco River. Later in the weekend, I will spend time with my parents and I have dinner plans with a friend.

Although I have a busy weekend planned, I will also take some quiet time to reflect on the real reason we have a long holiday weekend. It is to remember the sacrifices of the brave men and women that gave their lives to protect our freedom! On our school sign, we put the words, “May we never forgot that freedom isn’t free.”

Not only should we honor the fallen, but remember the families, especially the Gold Star mothers and fathers. Through small tokens of acknowledgement and actions we can show these families that they are never forgotten.

Have a nice weekend…

P.S. We held our annual YOU ROCK assembly with our students, faculty and staff. Please ask your child to share his/her “purple YOU ROCK card.” Each student received a personalized card in celebration of being a part of our school community.
