Welcome Back to School!

Our seventh graders have been busy working through the transition process, and are well on their way to knowing the physical layout of the school, the location of classrooms, their teachers, and plan book/binder management. All seems to be falling into place!  Although most of our eighth grade students are returning to our Learning Center, some are new. With the overall JH transition process behind them, they are still acclimating themselves to a new team of teachers, classes, and friends. 

The purpose of this site is to provide updates regarding homework assignments, projects, and assessments, as well as classroom announcements and calendar events. Just choose the tab for your child's grade level team. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Fay, Karen and I look forward to a fun and successful school year with all our students!
