Parent Letter- May 7
Principal's Message Greetings Birch Lane Families,

Thank you for the outpouring of support and kindness you showed our staff this week at Birch Lane. It was a heavy week, but the Thursday lunch, flowers, notes of kindness, and coffee cart helped carry us through.

Our state testing began this week and continues for various grades for the next two weeks. Please be mindful of the attached schedule as you consider pulling students out of class.
