From the Principal's Desk:


Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there! I hope you are being spoiled by your loved ones.


We can't thank you and your students enough for spoiling everyone for Teacher's Appreciation Week. The notes, flowers, and gifts were so kind.


Our PTO absolutely out did themselves. Teachers had treats each day and the lounge looked amazing. We definitely felt the love. Thank you for taking the time to make it a special week.



Your proud Principal,

Sara Rush
