Message from Mrs. Duran

Beginning May 1st, I will start denying checkout to anyone with an overdue book in an attempt to get all library books returned.


May 14th is the last day for checkout for everyone.


May 21st is the last day of library classes and all books are due on that day.

What Does It Mean To Be A Title I School?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools. Schools can be designated as “Title I” if certain criteria are met. Title I is the federal government’s commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate to high income students. These funds are used to help all students meet academic standards. Click the links below to learn more!
