April 2022

It has been a wonderful start to the fourth quarter and we still have many exciting events coming up for us to look forward to.


We are full steam ahead for these last few weeks of the spring semester! Students and teachers continue to prepare for upcoming tests, concerts, contests, and spring sports. And, even though it is a busy time of year, it is a great time to be an Eagle.


Thank you for your continued support and encouragement of our students each day and I wish you well this Easter.


Go Eagles & God bless!
