End of 2021-2022 School Year - 6.3.22 Memo


As we end our 2021-2022 school year, we are grateful to so many. Our committed faculty, staff, students, and families supported our efforts to start strong, stay strong, and finish strong!



An exciting congratulations goes out to Ms. Gloria Butler. Ms.Butler is retiring from education at the end of this school year. She has been an amazing asset to our school and education. She is leaving a legacy of loving, learning, leading and her presence will be greatly missed! Once a Leopard, always a Leopard! Wishing her the very best on a well-deserved retirement!


Our May Faculty/Staff Member of the Month recipient was Ms. Magali Diaz, our receptionist! We appreciate her dedication to Lead Mine - as do many! Congrats Magali!


Our Assistant Principal has joined the ranks of the 'Mrs.' - congratulations to Ms. Hudson on becoming Mrs. Weller!
