Our staff is prepared to work with all our students in every way to encourage and motivate them to learn at high levels. It is our goal for students to feel school is a safe, respectful and welcoming environment. We know only then will they be able to do their best academically and truly love school.  

    We have many returning teachers and staff members, although some have changed grade levels. It is going to be an exciting year and you will be hearing about many things now being planned, to motivate and engage our students including; some optional activities for students during recesses, new ways for students to earn points for positive behavior, etc. We will also be adding family events where students will be able to show off their learned writing skills. We hope you will be able to attend.
