Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

I hope you have enjoyed a safe and memorable summer break. We are excited to welcome back our returning students as well as new families/students to the neighborhood. We have spent the summer planning for an Awesome school year.  You will find some new programs available as we have maintained the programs you love such as E-Sports and Broadcasting. 
I am so proud of the work we are doing in our district to close the achievement gap with students. Covid has affected our students in a mighty way therefore as a district we have committed to increased social emotional learning opportunities as well as additional classroom support. Please take advantage of our after school programs. As always, our support team
It is very important to maintain good working numbers to reach you during the day.
As we slowly return to some normalcy, our students will have field experiences once again.
