Principal's Message

  • Bulldogs,

    Welcome to Trimester 2!  We began 2nd trimester on December 3rd. Students schedules are available on Skyward. This is when students have a chance to restart and try something new. We've met in advisory classes and conducted goal setting, ELA and Math classes have administered STAR and IAB assessment, and students have 3 months of learning under their belts.

    Sports this trimester include Wrestling and Girls Basketball from Nov-December. Boys Basketball and Girls Soccer from January-March.  Please have a current physical on file, and athletic forms completed on-line.

    Winter Break is from December 24-January 7th. School resumes on January 8th.

    Band, Orchestra and Choir concerts are in December. If you would like to enjoy a sample of their music, please join us for our final music assembly on December 19th at 8:00 am. Each group will perform 1 or 2 of their songs.

    Students should continue to work on our Imagine Math learning tracks throughout the Winter Break. Imagine Math is a universal Math intervention that supports all students. There is 1:1 tutoring on the site if you need it.

    Please follow us on our facebook page for regular updates:
