Message from Principal Parrish

Greetings from the Web,


It is hard to believe that it is already March! There are only three months left in this school year. It is time to buckle down and finish strong! Consistent attendance, reading daily, and practicing math facts are great habits to begin. I also recommend communicating with your child's teachers to learn more specific ways to finish the school year in strong fashion.


Thank you for everything that you do to support our school,


Mr. Parrish
