Notes from Mrs. Ha:   
•  Thank you to all the families that attended our STEM Showcase Open House this past Wednesday! I hope you were impressed as much as I am with all the amazing work our kids displayed and demonstrated. I am proud of their hard work and accomplishments!  
•  I would also like to thank the parents/guardians that provided feedback in regards to my weekly bulletins.  I greatly appreciate each and every reply and will be taking all of the suggestions into consideration for the upcoming year!    
•  Can you believe it? The end of the year is Wednesday 6/8.  Please be sure to check PowerSchool for updated grades.  My last day for late work is this Thursday 6/2.  Both 7th and 8th graders will have their final science assignment as their Quarter #4 notebook check on Monday 6/6.  I will not be taking any late notebooks. Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions or concerns. 
Have a wonderful week!
