Welcome back from the holiday break!!!  I trust that everyone is relaxed and  rejuvenated!  Welcome to the New Year - 2020! Best wishes for a very successful, happy and healthy New Year.  The month of January is a great month for  observing student achievement and maturity.    All the great instruction and  learning experiences from the first few months of school seem to make sense to  students and the results are amazing!  They now know about doing their personal best and learning from mistakes.  There is an incredible excitement in the air as  teachers, students and parents anticipate the second semester of this school year.  

As your principal, I am committed to continuing the tremendous mission and vision of our  school.  I am thrilled to be part of a dynamic staff of dedicated, talented, caring and committed educators and am excited to be working with our wonderful and brilliant students.  Our teaching and support staff is committed to providing caring and safe learning environments that educate the minds along with encouraging the hearts and spirits of our students.  Communication between home and school is valued.  Our monthly school newsletters are available via webpage and teacher created newsletters and school status communications including, e-mails, phone calls, notes, progress reports, grade level meetings, etc. are available so that parents may have the needed information to support their child in his/her current school experience.  Parent -Teacher conferences will be held after report cards are picked up, focusing on the first semester of progress for the year.  We will receive report cards very soon and we will have conversations about how we may improve instruction and learning.

And finally, the last reminder is regarding school attendance.  Our daily attendance is monitored by the State of Mississippi.  Our goal is to maintain high student attendance rates—this includes minimizing the amount of tardies each day.  It is very important to plan doctor visits after school or at a time when your child is able to return to school in a timely manner.    

Again, have a happy and prosperous New Year!  2020 is our year!!!!!
