    During this 2016 - 2017 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and many worthwhile traditions, with none being more important than continuing to build upon our tradition of excellence in education.  Our vision for our students?  Simply put:  Become Lifelong Learners . .  Realize Their Full Potential . . Appreciate the Importance of Their Education . . Become Empowered for Success!


    So to that end, our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel are committed to providing our students many opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, for high caliber and quality learning, continual growth, leadership opportunities, and achieving at a high level of excellence!  We pledge that this will be our focus daily, and we invite and encourage you to work in partnership with us to seize these opportunities.


    We look forward to a very positive and productive year together, and we extend a special, yearlong invitation to our parents to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want, we need, and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!
