Welcome Message

Dear Parents:

 

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year. We look forward to working with you this year to continue to raise the achievement level of our students.

 

As a school community, we are working hard to ensure that your children receive the finest instruction possible. We have high expectations for our students as we push them to higher academic levels. We will continue to initiate early intervention programs to address those students who are not making adequate progress throughout the year. But, we need your help.  Your participation in your child’s education is one of the most important factors in his/her success in school. All students have an academic diary so that they can write down their assignments and be more organized. Please check your child’s academic diary on a regular basis to see if they have homework or assignments to complete. Attend scheduled Parent Conferences to receive updates on your child’s academic progress. Contact your child’s counselor if you feel that your child needs academic help.

 

Working together we can ensure that your child receives a quality educational experience.

 

Marcy Hamm, Principal
