Principal's Message

This semester is flying by quickly! It is hard to believe that Spring Break is right around the corner and testing mode is almost upon us.  

Next Friday, March 29 , GCPS  will observe a student/teacher holiday, and then  GCPS will observe Spring Break beginning Monday, April 1 through Friday, April 5.  

Spring Break can be a good time to catch up on course work. Make sure to check in your courses and GCPS email to see if there are opportunities for specific assignments.  

We hope to see all of our students on campus for the Spring Dance on Friday, March 22 (grades 4-7) and Saturday, March 23 (grades 8-12).
