Dear Queen Anne and VOPP community,
It was an honor to serve as your Assistant Principal this year and I thank you for welcoming me with open arms! I have so many positive memories of this year! It shows what a caring and supportive community surrounds this school. As I move into my next role as Principal of Greenwood Elementary, I’ll hold our conversations and connections close to my heart! Take care Explorers...I know you’ll go far and will make a positive difference in this world!
Thank you for your astounding support throughout this challenging year Mrs. Taylor! You will be missed! We know you'll build and nourish a brilliant and kind community at Greenwood!
Thank you! Together we make SPARKS!
Volunteers bring the magic! To 20 full hearted volunteers who worked to fulfill executive, director, coordinator and lead roles on our board, Thank you! To close to 100 volunteers who helped with lunch, teacher classrooms, field trips events and so more, Thank you! BIG Thank you to Shalini Nilikantan for Leading Field Day!
Teachers bring the heart! On behalf of our entire community of parents and students, the PTSA thanks teachers and staff. We appreciate you showing up every day for our kids, providing the best quality education and social emotional support possible and having fun.
