Principal's Message

Welcome Back! Dawn Wood

I hope you are enjoying these final days of summer. I’m looking forward to welcoming you all back in the coming days and beginning another successful school year. It is also my great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to those families new to our district and to Miss Jacquelyn Miller who will be joining our faculty as a first grade teacher. I’m excited about the new year and the opportunity
to work together.

Learning Standards for reading and writing. Students in Grades 3-6 will continue
to experience our exciting 1:1 chromebook initiatives and have various
opportunities to collaborate with one another in meaningful ways. We will
also continue our work in science, providing our students with hands-on, inquiry-based
