Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

How fast time flies!  We are halfway through the school year and embarking on our Marking Period 3 and Semester 2 classes.  Grades will be available on the Portal on February 11th for all parents.

On February 19th at 1pm in the IMC, we will have our Coffee with the Principal with our Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Stephen Genco, who will be presenting important information about PARCC testing.  The calendar of testing dates for each grade level can be found on the school and district website.

Please continue to check the school calendar for upcoming events including our winter book fair, the 7th & 8th grade Superlative Dance, and performance dates and times for our Spring Musical.

Our School & Home Association is preparing for our annual gift auction on March 27th.   There is a lot to do and time is running short.  Anyone who is interested in attending or helping prepare for the events should check out our SHA tab on our website and reserve your table now!!

Yours in education,

Debra Phillips, Principal
