Summer is quickly drawing to a close. I hope everyone has been able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and will be eager to return rested and ready to face the challenges of a new school year. We have been busy preparing for the return of your child to a safe and caring learning environment where student learning and core values are priorities.
The 2016-17 school year will mark an exciting return to school. Orientation takes place on Thursday, September 8th for all students. Students will meet with Mrs. Ross, their grade level team of teachers and Mrs. Sexton, School Counselor/Dean of Students. The Code of Conduct and Agendas will be reviewed, as well as interpersonal relationships and development. Please discuss those items with your child. A permission slip will be included to sign and return to the student’s homeroom teacher. Students will also enjoy a BBQ at lunch, provided by Mrs. Carter and her staff.
Informational packets will be mailed out on August 29th. They will contain many items of interest to assist you and your child throughout the upcoming school year.
We will continue to provide new and exciting initiatives for the upcoming year, as well as many of the tried and true, which will appeal to every student and enhance their academic experiences.
Our goal continues to be the development of a true partnership among faculty, staff, parents and students. We remain committed to providing the best possible education for your child. Please call with concerns, ideas or just to say hello.
I look forward to hearing from you.
