A Letter from our Principal

It is the month of LOVE Wildcats,

Now is the time to focus on all the people in your lives. What do you do to demonstrate that you love them? Do you use your words to tell people you care about them, or do you use actions to show people you care about them?

One way to show your parents and family how much you love and appreciate them is to meet the expectations they have of you. Your parents and family want the very best for you. They want you to fulfill all your dreams and goals. They especially want YOU to want the very best for yourself. They want YOU to want to fulfill your dreams and goals. For that to happen though, YOU have to put forth all the effort. YOU have to decide what it is you want, how you will go about getting it, and then actually do the WORK to accomplish it.

Show your family how much you love them by taking responsibility for your actions, and by setting goals and achieving them. Demonstrating your love and respect for others is powerful. However, demonstrating love and respect for yourself is vital.

Choose a goal, create an action plan, DO the work. Be the best version of yourself so you can give others the best of you also.

Proud to be in the Pride,

Maura Bennington, Principal

Parent Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders

The safest way to drop off and pick up your child is through the car loop along the front of the school. Dropping students off along the road or in the elementary school parking lot creates a safety issue.
