Principal's Corner


We are looking forward to another great school year. I hope that everyone can come to our Open House on August 14th to drop off school supplies, meet the teachers and see classmates. We will be planning some exciting things this school year and we hope that you will join our PTO and be an active member in planning school events. Welcome Back!!!!
