Principal’s message: We are thrilled to have our children back on campus after a challenging year with online learning. Our staff and students have persevered. This year we have received grant funds to offer additional staff to work with any students that are struggling academically. In addition, we have camps taking place after school to assist those students in need of reinforcement. Our teachers and staff rise to the everyday challenge of meeting the needs of our diverse students and families. Therefore, a camp for our English Language Learners will also be taking place later this year. We encourage our learning community to join our Parent Teacher Association and attend our School Advisory Council meetings to take part in decisions about the school and provide input. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school office at 754-323-5450. - Christine Ringler, Principal
