It is my hope that this note reaches you in good spirits with your son or daughter
successfully completing Trimester 3. As you have heard me share many times before, we
have great kids at Massabesic High School! A day does not go by when I am struck by at
least one or two outstanding efforts demonstrated by our students. As Principal I feel
honored to be working with and seeing the growth of so many fine young people within

communities’ most precious resource, our kids.
Thanks for taking the time to read this note!
