Principal’s Notes - June 16, 2017

Last week on Friday, June 9, I had the pleasure of visiting the Club Awards celebration that took place after school in our Cafetorium. Congratulations to all students, especially club award recipients, for their wonderful contribution to clubs this past year. A special thank you to Student Council, and staff advisors Ms. Gluskin and Ms. Pandurevic for a planning a terrific club awards ceremony.

Congratulations to award recipients and to all students who participated in school athletics this past year. Our school athletics program depends entirely on our volunteer teacher coaches. Thank you to all our coaches under the leadership of Mr. Kung and Mr. Lee for supporting an incredible year of school athletics! We extend a very special thank you to our YMAC students, Mr. Kung, Mr. Lee, and Ms. Chow for organizing the Athletic Banquet.

Yearbooks were distributed to all students yesterday in Home Form. I would like to congratulate our Yearbook Committee, Spectrum, on their beautiful and memorable yearbook.
