    PRINCIPAL’S CORNER:

    Olympic Hills families,

     

    Thank you to everyone who came out for the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday at the Lake City Community Center to raise funds for our PTA. In addition to the delicious breakfast, our taiko drummers performed and student artwork was showcased from the Art Docent program. Special thanks to Sam Redsell for all of her work coordinating this event, and to Chuck Dickey and the Lion’s Club for donating the supplies, food, and chefs! I would also like to thank all of the families and staff who volunteered to help set up and clean up. This was such a wonderful event, and we are so grateful to have such a supportive community.
