Notes from Dr. Arias

Happy New School Year! Kick off the 2015-2016 school year with a strong focus on learning and expectations for student success. I know that a lot of hard work went into preparing for this day, but once we see our students arrive with the anticipation and excitement of a new year we can take a deep breath…enjoy the moment…and say “let’s do this!”

Have a great week…stay focused...and Lead on!
