Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am writing with news to share with you that I have accepted a position in Spokane, Washington as a Principal for Roosevelt Elementary. I want to thank each and every one of you for all your support, and for entrusting me with your children for the past few years. I am honored and feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Hellyer Elementary family. I have so many wonderful memories of my time at Hellyer and I am sad to say goodbye.
During my time here, I have fostered relationships with many of you and I will cherish the memories and friendships I’ve made. Hellyer has been a very special place for me and I will miss everyone - know that my dedication to my position as your principal will continue as we transition to new leadership at Hellyer throughout the summer.
Although it’s hard to say goodbye to the parents and staff, the hardest part of leaving is saying goodbye to the children. I have grown so attached to them over the last three years. I have loved watching them grow up into amazing young people and I will treasure my memories of them all.
With much thanks and appreciation,
Dr. Laura Franks, Principal
