It’s Fall ya’ll! And the fall season is in full swing and our school year has gotten off to a GREAT start! Even though it still feels like summer with the temperature, the mosquitoes and the frogs. September certainly did fly quickly by! Your children and their teachers have been very busy setting the stage for a rich year of learning.  By now, building and classroom procedures are well-ingrained, and students are deep into the literacy, math, science, and social studies content they will learn this year.  

We are now in our 2nd Nine Weeks studies. Our children have completed the first  benchmark testing and we are getting our data set so that we may send the report cards home and celebrate the achievement of our students.   

It is our goal that we continue to develop meaningful relationships with you and your child in order to help them thrive academically and socially. A huge shout-out to our amazing PTA for coming out in a large number during our last meeting. All of our previous meetings have been successful this year also.  

As your principal, I am committed to educating children. Your child is important to us. You are important to us. As parents, guardians and family, you are your child’s first and greatest teacher. Together as a loving school community—family and school—working as a mutually trusted and respected team, we exemplify our belief and philosophy that "it takes an entire village to raise and educate a child!" Together as a school family let us enjoy and relish every moment of this school year with our students because it passes by so quickly - as if ‘in the blink of an eye’!
