It is so hard to believe that is the last week of school! It is a bittersweet ending for me personally, and I get teary every time I think of saying goodbye to your children. It has been such a blessing to be their principal and I will be a puddle as I watch the buses pull away on Friday. We are fortunate to have Angela Lloyd as the new leader and the future of the Q is bright!
Please enjoy our last weekly announcements of the year.
QUINCY STUDENTS ARE “ON Q”
Quincy students earn “On Q!” tickets by following school expectations. Each week we draw a student’s name from each grade level. This week these incredible students were honored as Quincy “On Q!” superstars! Congratulations to all our students were “On Q!” this week.
Week of May 30
With Angela Lloyd moving into her new role as the fabulous principal of Quincy, we have a couple teacher transitions to share with you. Pete Goers will be moving up to the fifth grade team to teach alongside Ben Braymer and Peggy Greshaw. Also, Libby Young will be moving up to the fourth grade team to teach alongside Kerri Holwerda-Bush and Kaitlin Zoppa. 2022-2023 is shaping up to be the best year yet at Quincy!

The Zee Bus is getting ready to roll for summer of 2022. We are excited about new stop locations, guest readers, fun story times, and summer reading adventures. The bus is open to all and no cost to use it. Works just like a library: come check out books, take them home, read them, and bring them back the next week to get a new one. Please see the summer schedule below!

Our lost and found is overflowing! We have been encouraging students to take a look to see if any of their items are on the table or rack. We also invite parents to stop by the lost and found table when you are at school.
