A Message from Dr. Davenport

Thank you to all parents who attended our Open House this past Tuesday. We are grateful for these opportunities as a campus to host our parents. Hopefully, parents had a chance to sign up for Brighter Bites and our upcoming Parent Conference Day. We have another opportunity to host our Parents on Friday, September 30th with our Hispanic Heritage Program.

This Friday all students were sent home with two flyers. The first flyer was discussing our upcoming schedule for parents and family members wanting to have lunch with their Bear. The second flyer contained information for donations for our upcoming Trunk or Treat Fall Festival. Information for both flyers can also be seen below.

This is also the last week in the first grading cycle. Please ensure your student has completed all assignments and returned them to the teacher for grading.

Thank you all for your continued support of our campus. As we continue to collaborate with each other, our students will benefits the most from our efforts.
