Principal's Bulletin: Jan. 18, 2021 MLK Day and Ruby Bridges

With today being a holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr., it is more relevant than ever to talk to our students about not only his legacy, but how we can apply his perspective, ambition, and perseverance to our lives today.

Report cards will be sent to parents via email on November 23 . . . READ MORE
