Principal's Message

June 1, 2015

 Dear West Mercer Families,

 It is hard to believe we have already arrived at June.  The year seems to have flown by at an amazing speed.  With only 15 days left of school, I find myself reluctant to think about ending my year with this wonderful community.  As a newcomer at the start of this year, I am grateful for the warm way in which the community of staff, students, and parents welcomed me.  I have enjoyed my time with this community and learned a great deal with and from each student and adult I encountered.  As I move into my new position planning for Elementary #4, I will bring all that you have shared with me this year, knowing it will enrich the next school to open its doors on Mercer Island.  Thank you.
