    PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

    Dear Families,

    I can hardly believe that we have reached the end of our 5th year of Cove.  As we depart for summer, I am once again struck by how fortunate I am to be leading this fabulous community. The staff, children and families inspire and continuously remind me of why I love this work so much!

    On Wednesday morning, we will bid farewell to our 5th graders in a special culmination assembly. They are more than ready for their next adventure, and I wish them well!  They have led the way with innovative ideas and selfless leadership efforts to improve the school for all during Cove’s formative years!

    Thursday, June 13th is 1:15 pm dismissal for all students.  I look forward to 4 more memorable days with your children!  Thank you for a fantastic 2018-19 school year at Cove!

    Sincerely,
    Michelle Walker, Principal

    2019-2020 School Year Dates- please note new calendar updates. You will notice there are 2 more weeks of early dismissal (one in August and one in February). These early release weeks will enable your child's teacher to devote more time to deeper one-on-one assessments, helping them meet your child where they are. The school day times will remain the same including Wednesday 1:15 dismissals.
