#ChurchillPride – June 5, 2019

Dear Churchill community,

What an amazing day! Well, the sun came out and we were able to have our staff and students play in our annual 6th grade kickball game. Our students had such a great time. Today, we also practiced our last scheduled fire drill of the year. The students demonstrated how to safely exit the building and line up with their teachers in record time!

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day of school. It is also a half day, students will be dismissed at 11:40 a.m.

We hope that you and your family have a safe and relaxing summer break!

Sincerely,

Steve Kern
