June 2018

It is June!  What a great year we have had! 

Our testing season is nearly done!  Our teachers have done a wonderful job of administering and our students have done their very best taking the state tests for this year.  We thank everyone for your assistance as we learn more and better ways to support our students academically.  How very blessed we are to have such a tremendous PTA, teaching and support staff.  Thanks to them we had an incredible Family Art Night and STEAM EXPO! We had the Science, Engineering, and Innovation Fair in the STEAM lab.  We had STEAM projects and our ART Exhibits in the cafeteria.  We had Legacy Tile painting and Science stations on the patio.  We had a Mad Scientist demonstration on the outdoor stage.  In addition to that, we had Pizza Man Dan pizza and Mr. Softee ice cream available.  What a priceless experience!  I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for making this a true Thunderbolt community event!  My deepest, most heartfelt thanks!

Being a person of faith, I believe that sometimes doors are opened and sometimes they are closed.  Sometimes, things to which you cling so dearly are pryed from your hands to leave them open for other opportunities to which you are being called.  Sometimes, one must accept that they are not the one to lead the charge across the river to the Promised land.  I am at the crossroads of these three paths.  I have been here for four and a half magnificent years.  I have enjoyed every minute of being the principal of this fantastic school.  However, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.  At the end of this school year, I will be pursuing other educational adventures that will take me to places beyond Hueneme Elementary School.  It has been my pleasure, my privilege, and my deepest honor to work with the students, staff, and families here.  I am very proud of all of the marvelous things we have accomplished together and wish you all the very best in your future endeavors.  I would like to thank our hard working, tireless teaching staff for all of their excellent efforts.  I would like to thank our assistant principal, counselor, and support staff and volunteers for all of their hard work to make this a marvelous place to learn and work.  In addition, thank you to Ms. Tabitha Hottendorf and our awesome ASES staff for all of their hard work in the after school program.  Amazing effort on everyone's part! 

As we head into summer break, the best gift we can give to each other is our time.  Read together, play games together, travel together, if you are able.  I wish you a relaxing summer of fun and family togetherness.
To those who will be going off to junior high school, we wish you well in your new adventure.  
To those who may move away, we wish for you safe travels and good luck in your new location.
To those of you who will be returning to Hueneme Elementary in the fall, we look forward to seeing you in August when we will once again find ways to show our Thunderbolt PRIDE!
I leave our school in the capable hands of Ms. Monica Sides who will work diligently to take Hueneme Elementary to the next level of educational excellence.   

Please check out our entire website throughout the summer for important information about next!  If you have suggestions for how we can make this an even better school, please let us know.  Better yet, get involved in our parent programs!  "Many hands make light work!" 

With something to think about and a WHOLE LOT of Thunderbolt PRIDE, 'Happy Trails to you until we meet again!'

Go Thunderbolts!
