From the Principal's desk


August 2023


Dear Parents/Guardians,


Thank you for another eventful year!  The first day of school is quickly approaching.  We are excited to get back to school this fall.  The administrative team is happy to announce that our chronic lateness and absences percentages have improved immensely from last year!  Thank you for your dedication and support by bringing your child(ren) to school.  As a result, our students were able to make significant gains in reading in every grade level.  We are striving to maintain these gains on a continuum, years to come.  With your support, we know that we continue to improve our students’ educational journey.
