I look forward to a fantastic year and encourage you as parents to communicate often with the school and staff if questions or needs arise. A parent's sustained interest in their child's academic and social experiences at school can be great motivation for learning. Let your child see and feel that we are working together in every way to make this a terrific school year.
See you at our Back to School Night!
