Principal's Message

We are preparing for our upcoming SBAC assessments.  Testing will begin the week of April 29th.  Please ensure to bring your children on time every day.  Make sure your child gets a good night of sleep and eats a healthy breakfast.  Breakfast is served daily at 7:30 a.m.  Stay positive about testing and encourage your child to do his/her best each day of testing.  Many children get nervous during testing, which can cause anxiety.  By acknowledging the importance of them being well prepared for testing, your positive support will make the difference.  

     Student attendance is imperative to growth.  Please ensure students attend school daily so that they don’t miss instruction and great school experiences.  Working collaboratively we will continue to thrive, Thank you!
