A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

Another school year has come and gone and we are already making preparations for the new year. We're excited to have some new teachers joining us for the 2014-15 school year but sad to say goodbye to Ms. Gadbois and Mr. Chun. We thank them wholeheartedly for serving the many students who have passed through their doors with dedication, care and great teaching!
We wish them all the best in their retirement!
We also want to say our goodbyes to Mrs. Sammons, Ms. Mullen and Mrs. Teeny who are moving on to different schools. We wish them the best.

Keep watching this website for dates, news, etc. and we hope you have a fun, happy and safe summer! 

All the best,

Karl Newsome
