A new school year is upon us. The air has the chill of autumn. There are new faces throughout the school. New families have chosen our community in which to settle and raise their children. We welcome them all and look forward to getting to know each and every new member of our community.
Welcome to our new faculty and staff:
Matthew Mills - Physical Education Teacher & Athletic Director
Jennifer Jicha - Special Education Teacher
Dennis Root - Technology Teacher
Lisa Parker - Cafeteria Worker & Mentoring Coordinator
The school-wide theme for the 2013-14 school year is “Create Your World”. Throughout the year learning and educational opportunities will be designed to arm our students with the tools they can use to develop their goals, know why they should study, what they may need to learn to achieve their dreams. We’ll encourage students to challenge themselves, their classmates and their teachers.
The District is working hard to implement the Common Core Standards and prepare all of our students to be college and career ready.
Wishing you a great school year.
