Principal's Message

April 1, 2022

Dear Island View Families:

One thing I love and appreciate about my job is the relationships I form with your students and the amazing conversations they offer. For instance, I had the following exchange recently with a 2nd grader:

“Mr. Hanrahan, what’s your opinion of Harry Potter?”

“Hmmmmm…I’d say I love Harry Potter.”

“Well, between zero and infinity, how much do you like him?”

“Probably closer to infinity.”

“Well, I made up a number that’s bigger than infinity. It’s called a google-plex.”

“Wow, I’d say I like Harry Potter that much.”

“Do you know I like little baby shrimp too? We had them for dinner last night.”

Now, how do you top that conversation? 😊 It shows curiosity, confidence, and an adorable agility of mind—not to mention the most precious non sequitur I’ve ever heard. Simply put: your students are a joy to be around every day. Thank you for sharing them with the Island View staff.

As we move into spring, state testing will begin; please anticipate more information and a testing schedule later in April. I also realize many parents are wondering when volunteering in schools will resume. The district and principals are currently working on a plan for volunteers. I will communicate the plan to families once it is finalized. I appreciate your patience as we transition out of our COVID restrictions.

I hope you enjoy a restful and fun spring break with your amazing kids. As always please let me know if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.

In gratitude-

Brian Hanrahan
