A Message From Our Principal
Dear Tolt Families,

It is hard to believe we only have a few more weeks until the end of the school year. We are committed to helping our students to finish strong.

We had a great turnout at last Friday night’s Bearapalooza, and our students looked like they were having a blast. Students were dancing, playing basketball, ping pong, and video games, soaking our staff members in the Water Tower, enjoying eating popcorn and pizza, and more. Thank you to our PTSA and parent chaperones who contributed to making this event a huge success!

We are halfway through state testing, with more testing next week. These can feel like long days to students. Your help in ensuring they get good nights of sleep and are eating healthy meals so they can do their best is appreciated.

Thank you for all of the support of our school this year. We truly appreciate everything our families do to help our students to be successful.

Go Bears!

Amie Karkainen, Principal
