Dear Watertown Faculty and Families,
When I ask students about Memorial Day, I’m never surprised to hear about the hot dogs, hamburgers, and exciting parade floats (that mark the start of summer) they look forward to each year….and those wonderful memories always remind me that we are able to enjoy these freedoms because we have brave and courageous men and women, from the past and present, who dedicate their lives to country, life, and liberty. I wish you all a wonderful red, white, and blue weekend!
