Welcome to the 2018-2019 Academic Year!


What an exciting year we have ahead!  We have finished with the gymnasium and auditorium renovations and we have nearly completed the renovation to the cafeteria and our school is looking great!  What a transformation! 

Our students have a longstanding tradition of academic excellence. This school year each and every student will be issued a Chromebook for their use!  This will facilitate the use of technology education in both school and in the home.  Our faculty and staff, working with your student, strive to make their transition from elementary school to high school a seamless one.  This is most successfully done with support and participation from parents, staff and the students themselves.  We all work in partnership to create the most positive educational experience possible for our students.  Parental contribution and involvement are required to fully create this experience.  Our administration, faculty and staff are wholly committed to working with you and your student towards this goal.  We encourage the students to get involved, not only in their school work, but in character-building, and extra-curricular activities as well.  We hope that by developing the 6 pillars of character our students will make good sound choices daily.

Parents, stay connected and involved in your students’ education.  Check their grades on PowerSchool, look in their binder, check their agenda, monitor their Chromebook assignments and review their homework.  Your participation in this team effort really makes the difference in your child’s ability to achieve success!
