We made it! The end of the June is here and so is the end of the school year. Congratulations to everyone on a successful school year! June has been filled with many events and memories and while the weather may not be cooperating, you can definitely feel that summer is here. This month I had the privilege to be involved in two memorable firsts for me as a Principal, Graduation and Awards Day. It was an honor to share in the celebration of the successes of our students.
I feel that here at Arborfield School we have a lot to be proud of. At our recent assembly, students and staff were invited to reflect on something that they or our school did this year that made them proud. It is important to take time to reflect on the positives in one’s life and take a moment to truly feel a sense of accomplishment. As a school, we created a banner of “Wolf Pack Pride” to celebrate these successes. It is wonderful to read what has made everyone proud!
We also said farewell to two staff members who have a great deal to be proud of. Mr. Mohr joined us to complete the Sr. Math and Science teaching for May and June. His efforts to ensure students are successful are much appreciated. His approachable demeanor and genuineness were well received by students and staff alike. We wish you all the best Mr. Mohr!
Mrs. Thesen retires at the end of this year. She has worked at Arborfield School for 26 years! Mrs. Thesen is a pillar of Arborfield School and not a day goes by that she isn’t helping each and every one of us in the building in some way or another. She has a kind and caring nature that makes each of us feel completely at home and cared for. She holds the respect and affection of all of us! So much so, that she received a standing ovation at our assembly! Mrs. Thesen you will be dearly missed and we hope you stop by and read us a story from time to time.
Next fall we will welcome two new staff members. Mr. David Underwood will join us teaching Sr. Math and Science. Mr. Underwood is currently teaching in LaLoche. Mrs. Teresa Ralph will join us as our Administrative Assistant. We welcome both of these new staff members to the Wolfpack.
I wish all of you a safe and happy summer!
