Principal Message

Welcome back everyone and happy first week. We've had an outstanding start to our school year. After all the preparation, its great to get students and families back into the building. Thank you to everyone for a great start.

  • We held our first assembly of the year. Students were welcomed to school, and reminded of the Patriot Pride. I also met with each grade level to review expectations in the various areas of the building.
  • This week students participated in their first fire drill. The students exited the building quickly and quietly. In addition, the students and staff practiced a medical hold in case of an emergency.
  • Tuesday night is Open House. All families are welcome to attend.
  • Please feel free to contact myself or the office at any time if you have comments or questions.

Looking forward to Tuesday night.
