Welcome to December

Hello Families,


We have received a great deal of positive feedback about the process for parent teacher conferences this year, and we want to thank families for reaching out and connecting with your child's teachers. We also would like to share our gratitude for teachers, counselors and our bilingual assistants who made the two days successful. Finally, we want to share our heartfelt appreciation for families who took time to drop in to share ideas and suggestions at our open listening sessions. We are grateful to be in community with you.


In house time this week, students got support updating their passwords to the new 16 character format. If your child still has not updated their password, or needs support, encourage them to talk to any one of their teachers.

Welcome to our Campus Security Associate!

Join us in welcoming our new CSA, Tia Cunningham, who is spending her first week getting to know students and supporting consistent behavior expectations. Both students and staff are enjoying the opportunity to meet and get to know Ms. T. Welcome Tia! We are glad you are here.
