    Principal's Message for the 2022-2023 School Year:

    Welcome Back! We are so excited for this new school year and have been busy all summer preparing our building and classrooms to welcome you back. Our first school event will be Meet the Teacher. It will start in the cafeteria where you will be able to get uniforms, car tags, and other important resources and then transition to meeting our awesome teachers for the 22-23 school year. I hope to see each of you there.
