A Message From Principal Nerenberg

We are so excited about the new school year!  We have several priorities and key initiatives we will be focusing on this year as we work to ensure that each of our students achieves on the highest possible levels.  

We are excited to launch our Dual Immersion Kindergarten class, offering a full Spanish language immersion learning experience for both native Spanish and native English speakers.  We are launching AVID Elementary programming in our 4th and 5th grades, fostering a college-going culture and college and career readiness among our students as they prepare for the transition to middle school.  We are continuing to refine our instructional program to ensure alignment to the Common Core State Standards in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics.  Each of these initiatives impacts our whole community as we strive to be a community school that nurtures each of our students and families. 

Dana L. Nerenberg, Principal
