Good, Better, Best; Never Let it Rest Until Our Good is Better and our Better is BEST!

Principal's Update

Welcome back to campus Panthers!

We have had a very smooth re-opening to campus and I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your support, diligence to new safety procedures, and understanding as we navigate our new normal at school. I also want to thank our teachers for their support in a safe re-opening. Students returned to campus this week and were eager to be back in class. We will make this a wonderful year even with our increased safety precautions and modified schedule.

Thank you again,

Mrs. Schwartz
