Principals' Weekly Message

From The Principal's Desk...

As we head into week #9, we continue to work hard to meet the needs of every student walking through our door. Progress is measured in many ways, however, I am pleased to say the direction of our journey together is heading in a positive manner. We will always need to adjust and adapt, but overall I'm very happy with our students and staff, as we recalibrate structure and expectations.

Never hesistate to reach out directly to me or any staff member.

Wishing everyone a great weekend.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
