A Message from Our Principal

Dear Families,

Welcome to our website! We are proud to present this communication vehicle where you can keep up-to-date and informed of all our amazing programs and activities.

We recognize the importance of involving parents in the educational process. Research shows that when parents are actively involved in school, their children are absent less often, behave better, and, therefore, achieve more. Please visit our office, and find out how you can get involved in our PTSO. Welcome!
