Dear Pingree Families,
As we launch into 2010 and settle into second semester, I am proud to share a mid-year overview of the exciting program work that is happening throughout the school. This document is organized by administrative department and written by members of the Administrative Team; all initiatives listed are the product of a student-centered community committed to excellence. Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or seek additional information about the initiatives listed.
