A Message From The Principal

Dear Parents,

The first days of school have been great, even with the unexpected issues that a new school year often brings. Meeting your children has been energizing, and getting to know them better is our goal. During the first few days we must spend some time talking about procedures, expectations, and other beginning of the year concerns, but instruction has already begun. Please encourage your child to come to school each day prepared to learn something new! As always, we welcome your involvement in the education of your child!

Dr. Ayesha Hunter, Principal
