A Message From The Superintendent

Dear School Community,

The month of May is a time of great celebration in our school community. Students perform in special programs, participate in awards ceremonies, compete in extracurricular events, and much more.

The ultimate celebration takes place with our seniors on Friday, May 26, as they walk the stage for high school graduation. Seniors have spent countless hours throughout the last four years preparing for this momentous occasion and planning for postsecondary experiences. Senior parents, thank you for sharing your students with us. We have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their educational journey, and we look forward to celebrating them at graduation next week!

We are incredibly proud of all of our students and the great achievements they have made during the 2022-2023 school year. We look forward to all that is to come!
