Tiger Talk: Thank you for a good year

Elementary principal encourages active summer

Pine River-Backus Schools Tiger Talk

The end of our school year is near. Thank you to all of our Pine River-Backus Tiger families for an outstanding 2021-2022 school year.

You have all been so patient, flexible, gracious and understanding over the last couple years as we navigated some tough times. You have been amazing to work alongside.

Things are much more "typical" around here, and that feels great. We accomplished so much and are looking forward to what the 2022-2023 school year will bring.

Remember to stay active this summer. Being outdoors is very healthy for your body and mind. Ride a bike, go for a run, go on a hike or just play in the yard. Find some friends and be active together.

Do not forget to grab a book to read to with your parents as well. Keep that brain active too.
