Phase one is on it's way...
thank you for helping us Imagine great possibilities!

Happy Easter to all of you and I hope that you had a blessed Holy Week and nice break as well!  Students returned rested and ready to tackle the end of the school year, which includes both fun and high academic expectations. It is of highest importance that our students finish strong, demonstrating their best efforts academically.  With that said, we are currently in the final MAP Growth testing window, and attendance, a good night’s sleep and a solid breakfast are precursors to a solid performance!
I am certain by now that most of you may have noticed the progress that has been made on our outdoor recreation center. While there are a few areas left in cue for completion, our students were able to enjoy the new playground area this past week. While pleased to “get out there” to enjoy some fun in the sun, it is a natural tendency for children (as well as adults) to wonder what is next, or what else is going to be happening. The asphalt and basketball backboards have yet to be completed within the next few weeks, and the hope is that our second annual Boosterthon will afford us the opportunity to purchase a new piece of play equipment. We are pleased with the current progress and look forward to the final few stages! Thanks for your continued support and understanding.
