Principal’s Message

As we enter the fourth nine-week marking period, I am excited. Excited for our seniors, who are just two months away from graduation. Excited for spring sports. Excited for awards ceremonies, honor society induction ceremonies and so many other fun events. Excited to watch our students finish strong and grow as mature, young adults. Let’s spring into action, and finish the school year as strong as possible.

Don’t forget that April 1 is an even day of school.
