Welcome Back

I hope this message finds everyone well-rested and ready for the start of school on Tuesday, September 4. In your final preparations for next week, please be sure to check our district's and schools' sites for information regarding school supplies and summer learning. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school's main office for assistance.

Entering Year 3 of our District's Strategic Action Plan, 2018-19 promises continued forward progress in each of our goal areas. Stay involved with your school and connected to the district to see our plans turn into action.

Last, but not least, I would like to take a moment to thank all the staff who have been hard at work over the summer getting everything ready for the return of our students. Our classrooms and schools look fantastic!

We are looking forward to seeing you next week. Until then ... enjoy the long weekend ahead!

Warm Regards,

Dr. G-
