Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have been preparing all summer for what promises to be another wonderful school year.  I encourage all parents to frequent both the district and school websites regularly for important updates to the school calendar and other special happenings.  
On Monday, August 25th, student schedules will be available on the Portal.  Please feel free to visit the school building between the hours of 8:30am - 3:30pm to take a tour of our facilities and get acquainted with the new schedule of classes.  
Picture Day for all students will take place on September 11th.  Picture forms will be distributed to students in homeroom.
Back to School Nights are posted on our school and district calendars.  I hope you are all able to attend and meet your child's teachers. 

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!  I look forward to seeing everyone on our first day of school on September 3rd!

Yours in education,

Debra Phillips, Principal
