    The Principal's Pen

      We are back from the holiday break and hopefully you are rejuvenated for the important educational work that lies ahead.  The first semester of the school year has passed and the second semester began on Tuesday, January 21st.  Remember, we still have time to reach our goals!

         We want our students to excel in the classroom and on all local, state, and/or national assessments given to them.  We must work together and encourage our students to work hard in order for them to realize that success is achievable.
