We believe in encouraging our students to take responsibility for their own actions and in holding them accountable for their academic performance and social interactions.
We believe making mistakes provides an opportunity to learn.
We believe our students will develop citizenship, responsibility, knowledge, self-worth, and strong leadership skills.

We believe in providing our students with a safe, nurturing environment, where they can discover their passions and become life long learners.
Please take advantage of this opportunity to receive extra math and reading support for your children over the course of the next six weeks of school. This support has helped many of our students close academic gaps while building much-needed confidence at the same time. Remediation is offered in a small group setting with a math focus on Tuesdays and a reading focus on Thursdays. Students get a snack and game break with Mr. Johnson after school and Personal Best Club support runs from 3:30-4:30pm. I look forward to helping as many of our invited students as we can. Please make this a priority for your children should they be fortunate enough to be recommended. If you see a need for these services and your child was not invited to join Personal Best, please call our front office.
