Principal's Message

Dear Jaguar Families,

Below you will find some important dates for the next few weeks.

We are half way through the first 9 week grading period. We will be sending out progress reports Tuesday 9/13 and will be holding conference night Thursday 9/15 from 5pm-7pm.

Our students that received schedule changes have been very resilient and adjusting to the changes. Great Job guys...

Students, continue to demonstrate those positive academic and social behaviors that I'm seeing around campus. Your teachers and I are very proud of you.

'"Teamwork Makes The Dream Work!"
