student. Our areas of focus will be to continue to improve student
achievement and attendance, provide a positive school climate,

Parents, our PTO will continue to have volunteer days and opportunities
at both buildings weekly. Let me encourage you to help if you

At any time during the year, if you have questions or concerns
regarding your student's progress, please call your student's
teacher, counselor, or administrative team member. We are looking
forward to a great year.
