We would like to thank all the grandparents that visited our school during Grandparent’s Week. It is so important in making lasting memories with our students. Please remember to ask you child every night what did they learned new at school. Every day is a learning adventure in which our students are being challenged with a rigorous curriculum. Please remember it is vital to have open communication with the school. We share a partnership in educating our students with our parents and community stakeholders.

Welcome to school, where we are Always Caring, Always Positive, and Always Learning. We are excited about the 2015-2016 school year. Our focus this year will incorporate rigor in our lessons and assessments.
The beginning of the year is always exciting, and we want our students to “make their marks” daily. We challenge our students to be brave, creative, and to learn something new every day.
We look forward in continuing to develop partnerships with our parents and the community. These relationships are vital in the growth of our students. It indeed takes a village to raise a child. Thank you for your support in making this a great school.
