PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Winter 2017

Semester Finals are upon us! Students please stay on top of your studies. We have many opportunities, including SATURDAY SCHOOL for you to improve your learning. Parents, please encourage your students to prepare early for their finals. 

Our theme this year is BeBold! Our staff are stepping outside their comfort zones to create rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We are redefining excellence every day! Your students will be asked to think critically, collaborate with others and respond in writing and orally using high level academic language.


Here is a link to a blog regarding "struggling learners." The idea is that all students should struggle when they learn. Please, take a look at it.

All Students Should be Struggling Learners
