Dear Caryn Families,

As the school year comes to an end, I would like to thank you for a fabulous year. It has been a privilege to work with such a great group of students, staff, and parents. I would like to congratulate our fifth grade students and wish them lots of luck as they transition to Day Creek Intermediate School, we will miss you!

A big thank you goes out to our wonderful PTA. I appreciate all of their hard work this year and fundraising efforts. Our PTA volunteered numerous hours holding the best interest of children as their forefront. Our volunteers supported many events this year to include Fall Festival, Open House, School Assemblies, Book Fairs, and Teacher Appreciation Week, to name a few. Again, thank you to our wonderful volunteers for all your support!

Finally, we have much to be proud of here at Caryn. Being honored as a 2016 California Gold Ribbon School is such an achievement for our students, staff, and community. It’s truly a spectacle to see the amount of perseverance displayed by all of our learners and the emphasis they put on their academics. I appreciate the hard work and dedication demonstrated by all stakeholders supporting students and for making our school a great place to be. I wish each of you the very best as we head towards summer break!

Warm Wishes,
Dino Tavolazzi
Principal
