A Message from the Principal

August 28, 2016

We have had a fantastic first week of school. It is vital that everybody plays a part to accomplish the impossible. We have accomplished the impossible during our 1st week of school. Our challenge is staying the course, beating the odds, and sustaining a school that will serve as the model for the district. I want to take this moment to say thank you. This week I have witnessed students highly engaged in their lesson, teachers committed to ensuring students’ safety, and a drive from staff to accept nothing but excellence. Kudos to the absolute best staff in the district!

Special Shout-Outs:

  • AM/PM Duty Crew – thank you for ensuring the safety of children in the face of potential danger
  • Ms. Hampton – dynamic instruction on the 1st week of school ;creation of our scholars into engineers through Robotics.
  • Ms. Metz – dynamic instruction students are highly engaged and the teacher is the facilitator
  • FLS TEAM– differentiated instruction 4 different ways to ensure our FLS instruction is rigorous and preparing students for optimum success
  • Mrs. Jenkins – students so excited about Science after her highly engaging instruction. Students are requesting to have it EVERYDAY.
  • Cafeteria Staff- for going over and beyond in meeting the expectations. They truly deserve a big round of applause for being AWESOME!
