Our mission is to provide a nurturing educational environment where students develop academic, physical, social, and emotional skills necessary for a lifetime of learning.

Principal's Message

I am so sad that I will not be able to find Conversation Hearts this year. I have included the article below in case you want to know the devastating story. The good news is they will be making a return! Those are my favorite part of Valentine's Day!! Well, those and chocolate. January was slightly better for weather and sickness so hopefully we are settling down and will not miss anymore days. We just finished our second NC Check In this past week and everyone is still continuing to work hard. Report cards also went home last week. This year is flying by!

As always, if you need me for questions, concerns or help give me a call or send me an email.

What I'm Tweeting About

I use and love Twitter. I find some great articles there so I would like to take this opportunity to share some things I have been reading. I look for articles that are relevant as an administrator but also as a parent. I hope you find these interesting and beneficial.
