Successful Back to School Night

Thank you to all who attended Back to School Night! It was great to see all the parents on campus and in their student's classroom. Thank you to all our teachers and support staff who made this night a success.


As a reminder, please help us keep our school safe during drop off and pick up. I have included the slide presentation in this newsletter. Please review our procedures so that we can direct better traffic flow during dismissal time.

School Site Council (SSC) is an advisory and decision-making body for all of our school improvement considerations for all grades. This council, composed of teachers, parents, an instructional assistant and the principal, considers such items as goals for the school, areas of curriculum emphasis, budget considerations, community concerns and interests, and programs and activities for our distinguished students. Thank you Latosha Padilla, Christine Glasser, and Sabrina Getchius for your service. They will be serving on SSC for the 2nd year.
