Principal Imel's Monday Message 6/1/2020

Families of FLME~ We made it! This is hands down the craziest year of my 16 years in education but what a learning experience! Since this is my final letter to you for the 2019-2020 school year, I want to start by saying thank you. Thank you all for being our partners in learning. While I recognize many unknowns remain for next year, what I do know is we value each and every one of our students and their families. You all are amazing. A few reminders as we wrap up the year...
