From the desk of Principal Williams

Families,

Thank you so much for all you are doing to ensure students arrive on campus on time for our 8 start time. Having your student arrive on time is an easy way to set up your student for success. This will Help your child to learn about routines and commitment. Give your child time to greet their friends before class and this can reduce the possibility of disruptions in the classroom.

Pick up at 1 for Kindergarten or 2:06. Kindercare and 1-6 is 2:06 pm.


I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know that we have been having some vandalism in our bathrooms. Please speak to your students about making good decisions and keeping our school safe and clean. Mr. Arnoldo our lead custodian works very hard all day long to ensure that students have a clean and well-maintained school. But when students create more work for him during the day it makes his job more challenging.


With much gratitude,


Mrs. Williams
