A Message from the Principal

Hello everybody,

We have some exciting events coming up right before Spring Break and after. Our PTO is sponsoring a game night for the students right after school next Thursday the 9th. Please encourage your students to attend. The information is in the flyer in this newsletter. Also the Thursday after Spring Break is a FFA sponsored dance. Please see their information as well. Both of these evens are fundraisers which set off program fees and activities for our students.

We also have two events coming up where we need your feedback. the Coffee with the principals - this Thursday at 8:30 and Saturday is our 3rd Parent University- Both of these events are ways for you to get involved and provide feedback to us as well as answer any questions you have for your students.

We are excited to work each and every day with such talented students!
