May Update
Posted on 05/01/2017
Less than a month from now, school will be "out" and another school year will be completed. However, there is still much to be accomplished and May typically races by rapidly! This time of year is always a combination of joy, sadness, stress, and relief. I hope you are able to find joy and satisfaction as you complete the tasks required or expected of you! Our staff will undoubtedly be thankful for the growth demonstrated by our students and the satisfaction of the part they are afforded in developing our young people and providing educational opportunities to help them become all that they can desire to be!  READ MORE...

April Update
Posted on 03/31/2017
I hope all enjoyed a restful, relaxing Spring Break filled with family, fun, and safety. As we return to regular classes, State Assessments are awaiting. I know that some oppose the tests and many of your concerns are valid. However, I encourage you to view the assessments as an opportunity for a snapshot of your child's progress in those areas the state deems important. The tests are not necessarily an indicator of your child's future success or a reflection of their abilities. They can be used as one (of many) tools to provide you and your student additional insights into his/her performance compared to the level our state has determined he/she should be. Please help your child to do his/her best on the tests and provide them support and encouragement during the coming weeks when the tests are administered. Regular sleep and healthy diet are always important - and test time is certainly no different in that respect. If you have questions or concerns regarding the testing, contact your school's principal and they will seek to assist and clarify for you.  READ MORE...
