Principal's Message

As your new principal, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome everyone back for an epic school year!  This year will be defined from the start, as the year of tremendous growth, innovation and perseverance.  We will in fact, demonstrate that in spite of any challenge, we are unstoppable.

The district has gone through great lengths to ensure that the delivery of instruction is both engaging and appropriate to the individual learning needs of our students. We, as a campus, are eager to deliver prescriptive instruction that will resonate an enthusiasm for learning for our students like never before.  Our diligence to ensure that every child feels supported and connected will be evident as we work cooperatively and openly with our community and establish constructive lines of communication, as we recognize that it truly takes a village to raise a child.

Author Brian Tracy said it best when he stated, “The greatest human quality is that of becoming unstoppable!  And you become unstoppable by refusing to quit, no matter what happens.”  We are geared up and ready for the task ahead this year.  Our Achievers will continue their legacy of excellence, as the delivery of instruction will be nothing short of masterful.
