May 10, 2024 - Principal's Message

Dear incoming II students and families,

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone had a great week of school.  Mrs. Bonczyk and I enjoyed our time visiting with 3rd grade students from Marilla and Elma this week when they came to the II for their building tours.  We met in our new, state-of-the-art cafeteria, went through common areas/classrooms like the Gym, Library and Art room, and we got to show the students how fortunate we are to have such beautiful fields out behind the II for recess.  I believe the students enjoyed their visit and left the main campus knowing that the transition to the II will be both manageable and exciting.  Although things might be a bit different for students on main campus, the takeaway from the visits has been that the Intermediate School is an elementary building that is small in scale and has nearly all the same elements of their current primary building.

Over the next two weeks, we will finish off the rest of our class visits.  Please click the link to see the letter regarding our Three-Phase Transition to the II.  Elma and Marilla 4th grade tours will wrap up during the week of May 13th and Wales (3rd & 4th) will visit the week of May 20th.

Have an amazing weekend!
