    Olympic Hills Family Newsletter

    Principal’s Corner

    I hope you all enjoyed spring break! I spent a weekend with my family in South Carolina and also had a relaxing week getting caught up at work and spending quality time with my son, Graham. I look forward to hearing how you all spent your spring break as well.

    This week is Public School Volunteer Week. I want to thank our many, amazing parent volunteers. Our volunteers teach after school programs, help with teacher projects, lead small groups, lead the Art Docent Program, plan fundraisers and events, and so much more. We are incredibly fortunate to have such an amazingly involved parent community here at Olympic Hills. THANK YOU for all you do.
