From the Principal Dear Parents and Guardians, I hope everyone is doing well. I can’t believe we have already finished up one month of school. We are really excited about this school year. The students were able to get back into the swing of things very quickly. I actually had a staff member state, “It’s like we didn’t have a break.” This past month we have really worked hard at collecting information on your child’s reading and math skills. This is helping us work on various learning paths when it comes to intervention and enrichment. Our staff are very determined to meet each student where they are with their learning in order to help each one grow. Our conferences will be taking place very soon and we encourage all of you to attend. Each child benefits from the team effort between families and teachers. As a building principal I know how important it is that we maintain a strong partnership for the benefit of each student. I hope to see all of you during conferences!
Parent Link Do you have slow internet, or no internet at all? Are you curious about possible options when it comes to having internet in your home? We have some forms in the office with a couple options that may work for your family. Pick one up in the office or call us and we’ll be happy to send one home with your child.
