Join us this week in promoting higher education for your students. This is Education Go Get It Week and a flyer has been sent home with different events each day. Please review this flyer and share the importance of striving for your best and higher education.

Please join me this Friday, Sept 17th at 9am for our very 1st Virtual Coffee with the Principal. Bring your favorite mug filled with a warm morning beverage and join me to chat about the school year. Learn about our plans for success this school year, how you can be involved, and next steps to support your child's education.

As we continue to keep your student safe on campus, we ask that you ensure we have up to date contact information for you in case of an emergency. We want to ensure all students have access to an adult if an emergency should arise as well as any important calls from the district regarding the learning environment.

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 972-749-4000 and we will do our very best to provide you with the information you need.
