"All you peoples, clap your hands; shout to God with cries of gladness. For the LORD, the Most High, the awesome, is the great king over all the earth." PS 47:2-3
Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Families,

We want to thank all of you who contributed to the Teacher and Staff Appreciation Luncheon this week and also those who provided our teachers with small tokens of gratitude throughout the week. As always, your generosity continues to amaze us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to educate your children.

In the next week, we will be sending out a link to a school survey for all parents and families to complete. It is important that you take a moment to help us in the completion of this survey as this feedback is instrumental in helping us to better our school, the instruction, and our communication with you. We ask that you make every effort to complete the survey within two weeks of receiving the link. If you have questions about this survey once it is received, please let us know.

These last few weeks of the year are going by very quickly, and it’s hard to believe our eighth graders begin their finals a week from today! Help us in reminding your student to continue to stay focused and to finish the year on a high note! 

God Bless!
Mrs. Ramos
