Quote of the Week:

I just wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful three years.  Sadly, this will be my last newsletter as I have decided to take a job opportunity with a national chain. The Cornerstone School has treated me like family since the moment I arrived and I'm going to miss everyone.  This is an amazing place and even bigger things are in store for the future.  I wish everyone nothing but the best.
