ap advice from Mr. Tegean #Spreading happiness and practicing excellence

"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great."

Zig Ziglar

Defeat the fear of failure with a positive attitude toward your learning. It is natural to make mistakes when you learn something new. Always remember that you must start and be willing to try new things before you can have success.

School Bus Expectations #Practicing Excellence

Parents and/or Guardians,

Please speak with our scholars about the importance of following the bus rules. Riding the bus is a privilege, not a right. We want all of our scholars to arrive and depart from school in a safe manner. Students should remain in their seats at all times, while facing forward with their feet under the seat, and out of the aisles. They should also maintain a voice level that does not impede the bus driver’s driving abilities.
