A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

The 2014-2015 school year is off to a great start. Students on campus seem happy and relaxed after the summer break and are ready and eager to learn. Student athletes have been showing and developing their athletic abilities by participating in first quarter sports, which include volleyball, football, cross country, and cheer.

Thank you for attending our Open House on August 21. I hope that you found the information provided to you useful, and that it will help you help your student succeed.

Please mark your calendars for Parent Teacher Conferences which are coming up on Thursday, October 9 and Friday, October 10.

Your partner in education,

Chris Jackson
Mr. Chris Jackson, Principal
