Cox Connection 4.1.24

 In Branding

Hi Katie,

Welcome back! I hope this message finds you and your family returning from a wonderful Spring Break. This time of year can always seem busy; state testing, classroom celebrations, field trips, and the end of the school year. I am delighted to be joining the team at this time and watching the success of the school year come to fruition.

I had the opportunity to attend the Montessori Gala, along with taking my son to see Charlotte’s Web before Spring Break. I feel so fortunate to be joining the San Tan community and wanted to thank all of you for the wonderful, warm welcome. I am hosting several meet and greets this Wednesday and I invite you to attend. Details for the event can be found below.

I also wanted to take the time to introduce a new member to our team. Ms. Crystal Orji is joining us as our new administrative assistant. We are thrilled for Ms. Orji to join our team and when you see her up front in the office, please take the chance to welcome her to the San Tan community.

Looking forward to seeing you in the drive lane!

Katie Cox
