I want to take this time to welcome our parents, teachers and students back from the holiday break; relaxed and rejuvenated!

Welcome to the New Year - 2019! 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. Again, have a happy and prosperous New Year! 2019 is our year!!!!!

Together, as a school family, let us enjoy and relish every moment of the remainder of this school year with our students because it passes by so quickly as if ‘in the blink of an eye'!
