Hello Landels Families!

As 2019 comes to an end, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you. It is a privilege to share in the many gifts you and your students bring to our community. Your support for community events, donations to charitable efforts, and passion for enriching the educational experience for our students make Landels a truly special place to grow and learn.  Most of all, I am grateful for the curious, thoughtful, and creative students you send us every day. We learn from them as they learn from us. 

Wishing you a peaceful and happy holiday break. We’ll see you again on January 7th. 

Heidi Galassi
