Saturday, March 29th, the school district hosted one of the district's largest meetings, centered on exploring all options for the future of education in our district. Parents, Teachers, Administrators, Politicians, and Business leaders from our community came together to dream big and explore how we can do better for our kids. Below is a featured video that looks at the current structure of education and why it will benefit our students and our community to not be afraid to change the paradigm.

We understand the transition from elementary into a middle school can sometimes be tougher on the parents, than their students. To help ease the process, we offer Parent 101 classes that will explain the systems of our school and the new supportive role they have as a parent of a responsible middle-schooler.
Every student has a time in the day when they are at their optimal learning level. Some kids are morning learners and some are better after lunch. To ensure the students experience each class during that time, we employ a rotating schedule. Every three weeks (or so) we'll rotate the schedule. Below are the three different schedules we employ throughout the school year.
