We appreciate your participation and taking safety in our building seriously in the total evacuation drill. It was one of the best we have ever had. Thanks to our police and fire department for making this drill possible.
Also, we are proud of your behavior during the informative assembly on "Just Reach One!" with Dennard Mitchell. We need to commit ourselves to REACH, the R standing for showing responsibility and respect, to yourself and to others, the E for being Empowered, knowing that we need to speak positively to ourselves, A is for acts of kindness every day you can give complements or just say hello, C is for Compassion take his challenge and make someone feel good, H stands for Healthy and Happy Lifestyle staying away from drugs, alcohol by making positive choices.

During September our character trait is responsibility. Students must learn to be responsible for their own actions and realize their actions are critical for maintaining and improving themselves, friendships, family, school, community and beyond. If we do good deeds, then we can be proud of our accomplishments. If our actions cause problems, then we need to find a way to solve problems or deal with the consequences.
We would like to remind our parents that we offer after school tutoring for all students neededing to improve their grades every Tuesday and Thursdays from 3:15 until 5:00 PM. Parents may request this extra help for their child. Computer use is available during this time.
