Principals Message


Welcome back! Happy New Year! I hope that each of you had a great break and enjoyed special time with loved ones. Time away from our everyday tasks allows for us to relax and re-charge while reflecting on the past year. I am excited about the next chapter in our 2017-2018 school year and look forward to us taking this journey together with compassion, enthusiasm and determination. We are excited for the continued partnership with each and every parent.
