Principal's Update 5/22/2024

Hello Roadrunner Families, 

As we are coming closer and closer to the end of the school year we have some fun events coming up.  Our talent show is tomorrow and we can't wait to see all the talent Neill students have!  Next week our 5th grade students who qualified for the all district track meet will head to Cooper to compete against other 5th grade students across the district.  If your student qualified, Mr. Peterson has sent home permission slips both paper and electronically for you to sign so your student can attend.  Families are also welcome to head to Cooper to cheer their students on! Friday the 31st our Early Adventures students will have their graduation and moving onto kindergarten celebration after school.  On Monday the 3rd we will have Neill alumni that are the graduating class of 2024 come walk the halls in their caps and gowns.  If you know of a Neill alumni please have them check their school email as information was sent to them.  Our kindergarten students have their 'graduation' and small musical performance on the 4th.  Then finally, on the 5th we have our 5th grade clap out at the end of the day.  Our 5th graders always walk the halls while all our younger students cheer them on as they leave our nest and head to middle school.  

We hope you have an enjoyable three day weekend as there is no school on Monday in observance of Memorial Day.  

In Partnership,
Principal Smith
