Contact Me

Feel free to contact me by phone or email; however, the attached form will explain a new PTS program I am implementing. This parent-teacher-student program will be a mobile application (you can also access on desktop) to keep everyone informed about academic progress as well as general and important information. The sheet tells you how to find the application and the login code to get connected! I encourage you all to take advantage of this program.
