Mrs. Sumida says Goodbye after 39 years Thumbnail Image
I wanted to take this opportunity to say goodbye to all of the students, parents, and staff members who have helped to make my 36 years here at Dahl such a rewarding experience. I have truly been blessed by all of the students who have been in my classes.
