Dear West Mercer Families,
I hope you had the opportunity to be outdoors this weekend enjoying the beautiful, Pacific Northwest Spring weather. It is hard to believe we have already arrived at May. It seems such a short time ago that I was crafting a letter to welcome you and your children back to school in the fall, and yet, here we are on the edge of the end of the school year.
At this time of year, busy schedules, special events, uptick of sporting events, and variety of “end-of-year” activities seem to make time speed up. At West Mercer, we are dedicated to making each of our learning days count. We are reviewing and reminding our students of our PAWS commitments (Practice Kindness, Act Responsibly, Welcome Challenges, and Show Respect) as a means of proactively addressing those springtime “squirrellies” that appear as the weather warms. We appreciate your support, as well, as you reinforce guidelines for positive behavior with your children.
