From the principal

Parents,

Thank you parents/students for a great 2017-2108!  As summer begins for most of you, our work here continues as we are starting preparations for the 2018-2019 school year.

First, we have started working on the 8th grade trip to Washington DC.  Unfortunately, due to some scheduling conflicts, we are not able to schedule our trip for May 2019.  Instead, we will be going to DC the first weekend in November 2018.  There are many positives about going earlier (such as weather, less crowds, less conflicts with spring/summer activities, etc).  However, we now have early deadlines for deposits, forms, and final balances due that we MUST observe.  Take a moment to scroll down to the 8th Grade Information section to review the links made available to you.

We are also working on a new schedule for next year to meet state required standards.  Expect to see some big changes in the fall.  In addition, report cards will be mailed home soon with supply lists, district calendars, and other important information.  Be sure to review everything included with your child's report card.

We encourage you to also join your child's graduating class on the Remind App (links also listed below).  This app is used to communicate with you throughout the summer and school year.  

Our wonderful staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for the opportunity to work with your children. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us with any concerns.

Sincerely,

Craig Nettleton, Principal
