Principal's Message

Thank you for a fantastic school year! We have so enjoyed your children.


Lots of information went home the last day of school; including your child’s report cards and MAP scores (grades 1 and 2). In addition, summer reading program information and information about summer school (for selected students) is included. Don’t leave these items in your child’s backpacks until August-take the time to reflect on the year and celebrate all of their accomplishments.

During the 5th grade promotion, we had the honor of recognizing our rising 6th graders. We also had an opportunity to honor Mr. Paul Smith, PTO co-lead and a 5th grade student, Evelyn Perez Torres with the #bekindlikecharli award in honor of Ms. Charli Bobichuck. As part of the ceremony we quickly summarized the year……………so in a nutshell, in no particular order………

Open House,  District Chorus, Archery, Junie B. Jones,  Singing Sea Otters, Town Halls, Science Fair, , Honey Horn, Storm the Citadel, Science Lab, Chinese, Spanish, Exhibition, Plaid About Reading, River of Words, Word Masters, CMLs, Otter Morning News, Fall Festival, Fire Alarms, Box Tops, IB Evaluation, International Night, ESOL Parent night, Rock Cards, Golden Spoons, Community Fair, Market Day, Operation 100/200%, School Store, ROCK Shop, Otter of the Week, Clubs, Student Council,  GT Arts, Special Olympics, Bluffton School of Dance, Teacher Cadets, Project Impact, Interact Club, Good News Club, Buddy Club, Hurricane Days, SC Ready, SC PASS, MAP, Pastries, Portfolios and Parents, Field Day, Water Day, fifth grade Promotion and finally…………..Stepping UP!

On the last day of school, your child met their new teacher. In grades 3-5 we are moving to a co-teacher model, where your child will have two teachers! This model has proven to be truly beneficial for our students in the dual-language classes, so we are moving to doing the same in all classes in those grade levels. This summer, towards the end of July, you will be receiving information from the school regarding registration, first week information etc… Please make sure all of your contact information is current and accurate. We also will continue to keep our website updated and will continue to post on Facebook.

Until then, please enjoy your summer. We will have modified days/hours during the summer which will include Monday thru Thursday, 7:00-5:30 pm.

Again, it truly has been my honor to serve as the principal of a most amazing school community! We will see you in August!!!!
