Newsletter for the Week of May 24th!

Thank you for a great 20-21 School Year!

As we wrap up the 20-21 school year this week, I would like to thank all of our families, students, and staff for making this a great school year. This year has been filled with many new challenges and I have been thoroughly impressed by how well everyone has handled all that has come our way. It has been a team effort and I am thankful for all of our team members: parents, students, staff, and the community!


We are already busy planning for the coming 21 - 22 school year and we are committed to making it one of our best yet!


Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

We are looking forward to seeing all of our students and families real soon!
