Principal's Message

Happy New Year’s, Diamondback family!

We are excited to welcome back your children and will continue striving towards our goals of academic excellence, and social and emotional growth for ALL students. With this said, “unity” continues to be the key. Your continued partnership and support make a world of difference.

All students will report to the gym, January 5th, to receive their schedule. Some students will have new classes. Our teachers will be welcoming your children by going over our Social Contracts from the beginning of the year, which set a great foundation for a nurturing and respectful classroom.

Our spring semester will get busy, so please stay updated and reach out to us as needed. We will continue to focus on positivity and support your child with the initiatives mentioned above.

I encourage everyone to take some time to reflect, communicate with their child, and plan for the best spring semester ever!

Go, Diamondbacks!

- Lorene Bazan, principal
