Administration's Message

We are nearing the end of the school year and with it come the activities and testing that lead us to a very busy two months. We begin to reflect on what has happened during this school year, what has been a success and what we need to improve for the future. We had some great successes with our programs such as band, Harmonia and robotics which are given kudos in this month's newsletter. What we've reflected on has to do with the changing school system and how we need to address the needs of our students and our future students.


It may seem early to be talking about future students, but in the front office it is a conversation that begins in January and really heats up in the spring. We are preparing to set up registration, organizing a class schedule for all students for next year, and taking a look at our resources and what we can do in order to best support teachers and students.


As parents and students, it is an exciting time. It is where 8th graders are looking at high school in their immediate futures and how to complete all assignments to be better prepared for more rigorous coursework in the coming year. Our 7th graders are viewing themselves as 8th graders and in charge of the school next year, and our incoming 7th graders are eager to place elementary school behind them. It is a time to prepare for change!


As we look towards change and the future, we want to be able to move all members of our communities forward with us. Take that step into the 2016-2017 school year by finishing strong this school year, and we hope to make those steps together.
