Dear Students,

Welcome to a new school year! Each year brings an increased sense of responsibility, leadership and expectations. I hold high expectations of my students and encourage them to hold high expectations of themselves. With this comes accountability, thoroughness, and time management. I look forward to sharing in your academic success this year.



Dear Parents/Guardians,

Parents are the most important people in a child's life. Together, we must continue to instill in our students a sense of confidence and self-esteem, so they may enjoy success.  I ask that you support my academic, homework and discipline efforts.  As a team, I am confident each student will strive to reach his/her highest potential and have a successful school year.

I will keep you informed of all aspects of your child's experiences. You are strongly encouraged to monitor your child's progress by accessing SchoolMax.  Quarterly conferences may also be scheduled in order to provide opportunities to communicate your child’s growth.  If at any time during the year you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting and working with you so your child may achieve in all aspects of their educational experience.
