Welcome Back To School

Thank you for helping us to have a great first few days back at school! The energy of our students and families was amazing! We look forward to a great year. As a reminder, please be sure to return information from the back to school packet such as the blue Authorization Form, white Health History form, and the Code of Conduct form. It is important that we have this information moving forward to ensure a smooth school year for your child. Parents, we also encourage you to review the Student/Parent Handbook available on our website for important information related to school  policy and regulations. If you would like a hard copy of this handbook, please contact the school. Please also friend us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for school events and pictures showcasing our amazing students and staff. Once again, thank you for a great start to the school year and I hope you all have a fantastic week!
