January 2022

From the Desk of Principal Blackshire

Welcome to 2022!

Happy New Year!


I hope that everyone has had a very restful holiday break. We are excited to be back and are eager to crush the second half of the school year! Our students have learned a lot this year, but we aren't finished yet. Please continue to encourage your student to try his or her best in academics and behavior so that he or she continues to be a model citizen that strives to reach personal goals. We appreciate your support and are grateful that we have you as our partners in your child's education this year!


Sincerely,


Principal Blackshire
