What it means to be a global citizen..

The marimba is a percussion instrument consisting of a set of wooden bars struck with yarn or rubber mallets to produce musical tones. It is found traditionally in Guatemala, Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Honduras.

Here, students in West Africa teach us how interconnected we are around the world.

Principal's Message

Happy first days of Fall. Not only is the air getting more crisp, but our students are also sharpening their academic & leadership skills. Teachers are doing a fantastic job engaging students in critical thinking and discourse. This coming month we will be focusing on specific instructional practices that will reinforce foundational skills and target literacy.
