The Fire that Fuels us is the Fire that Guides us..-Message from Principal
Dear Dragon Families,
It seems like every week is so very busy. It was wonderful to see everyone at Back to School Night. There were so many people here and it was great to see all the lively conversations. It just felt like family.
I know we had some families working to get on Parent Portal. Please contact us if you still cannot get on. We want to help. Below are instructions for new families.
Genesis Parent Portal Directions
Go to our school’s homepage
Go to the Parent’s tab and click on Genesis Parent Portal

I wanted to share that we have started talking to the students about building relationships. We are talking about understanding the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. This week we talked about how to free yourself from negative people. We should spend time with driven and like-minded people who reflect the person you want to be. That we should choose a friend who you are proud to know, someone you admire, and who loves and respects you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be you.
I also spoke about giving people a fair chance. Remember everyone has a story and throughout our lives, we meet people with incredible stories and who provide opportunities for our own growth. If you give a person a chance, they may have something amazing to offer. Be ready for the challenge and opportunity to meet someone new who may change your life forever.
Should you have any questions or need assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office at (609) 476-6600.We're here to support you in any way we can.
Dr. Jennifer Holmstrom, Principal
