Principal's Message

Dear Island View Families:

In January, several Watch DOGs and students (and a couple momsJ) planted over a 100 tulip bulbs in the front of the school. Now they are in full bloom and color. Last week as I crossed students in the parking lot, a first grader excitedly pointed at a pink tulip and exclaimed, “Mr. Hanrahan – I planted that one!” As I looked at her sunny smile, I thought to myself, “that’s exactly what this school is all about: planting seeds and watching them grow miraculously.” I do love our school community.

It is hard to believe summer is approaching so quickly. Still, we have much to accomplish before we end the 2017-18 school year, including very important state assessments. While I will mail a more detailed explanation of testing to 3rd-5th grade families soon, please place the following testing dates on your calendars. It is very important that students attend school during these dates:

  • English Language Arts: May 14-18
  • Math: May 22-25
  • Science (5th grade): May 29-30

While these assessments are important, we also celebrate this time of the school year with exciting learning opportunities and field trips. Students will take a boat trip, they will walk through the halls of our state capitol, they will study tide pools, and so much more. The Island View staff truly understands that rich learning can take place outside the classroom, as well as in it. I am very proud of the opportunities your students enjoy at Island View. It is what we call proud, soarin’ flight!

Enjoy the rest of spring-

Brian Hanrahan, Principal
