    Principal’s Corner

    Olympic Hills Families,

    We are almost through with the 2018-19 school year.  From my limited view, it seems to have been a productive one.  Enjoy your time with your children and keep them reading during the summer.  Strong readers tend to be successful students as they work to master increasingly challenging material. 

    In partnership,

    BiHoa Caldwell

    Interim Principal
