Principal's Message

Dear Parents,


During this season of thanks, I would like to begin by showing my gratitude for the many pillars of the school community. First, I am thankful for the faculty and staff who exhibit impeccable attendance and ensure that students are being challenged in an academically thrilling, student-centered environment. Their hard work ensures that the needs of the students are being met. Second, I am thankful for the parents for your support and dedication to your children’s academic, social-emotional, physical growth and development. Our partnership fosters your children’s education and enhances our school in all aspects, especially with our stellar NWEA Test Scores. Although children should be measured well beyond an exam, these levels of growth would be unobtainable without your support. Lastly, I am thankful for the students that come to school each day with smiles upon their faces and are ready to meet the challenges of a rigorous academic environment. It is because of our students that I am truly able to enjoy my administrative journey.


Sincerely,

Stephanie Eafford

Literacy Night

The scholars had an exciting time with our literacy night. Scholars had pizza while they enjoyed story time, played literacy games, and they all received a free reading book.
