From the Principal

Hello Syre Families!

We are four days away from winter break and there is a certain buzz of excitement going through the halls.  If you have not already seen your child’s report card, be sure to check their backpack as they came home today.  I must say that I am VERY proud of each student.  The report cards were overwhelmingly strong and I applaud the effort that students’ put into first trimester.  Please give your child a few minutes to share their thoughts with you about their report card and include time to set goals for second trimester.

Don’t forget that we have our annual holiday sing along this Friday at 2:30 p.m.

Winter break starts on Monday, December 22nd.  We welcome students back to school on Monday, January 5, 2015!
