A Message from the Principal
Happy Veterans Day!
What an honor to serve this amazing community of families, students, teachers and veterans. We are looking forward to officially celebrating our veterans Monday at our assembly. This is my first in-person assembly for Veterans Day and I am beyond impressed by all the wonderful family members who have served our country. We hope to instill a sense of awe and appreciation of those who have served so that our future generations can appreciate the beauty of our country!
Thank you for joining me in celebrating the heroes among us!

This nationally normed assessment is designed to measure growth over time in the areas of reading and math. The district utilizes the achievement and growth data from MAP to inform instructional planning for individuals and groups of students; and measure growth from year-to-year.
