From the Principal's Desk
Now that we’re fully underway, teachers are gathering diverse information about your child/children through various assessments and daily observations. Our goal is to communicate with you in a timely manner so that if we’re noticing anything which needs to be addressed you are informed. At times, problem solving may require a team approach. As we engage with you, please remember the following conversation norms in the picture below. They are the bedrock to maintaining solid working relationships as we navigate through this school year together.

locate at another Ottawa County School.
