A Message from the Principal

Thank you to the over 40 families that attended parent conferences last night. If you were not able to attend your student should bring home their report card. Also, if you need to have a parent conference, please schedule with your child's teacher. It is never too late to have that conference. Please make note of the parent University offerings we have for families this Spring!

It is an honor and privilege to work with your students!!

My door is always open for any concern or feedback!

Principal Smith

Please have your student bring their district issued laptop and charger everyday!
