Welcome back to all our parents and students.

This semester, students are researching and presenting on a variety of topics during our character education block each day. I have seen some very interesting presentations already. Our scholars are excellent students with great leadership skills.

Parents, you should be proud of your children. Please continue to mold and shape their lives. The future will be shaped with students who are prepared.

Our fifth graders also presented their STEM projects this week. They did an excellent job. Parents, we thank you for your support.
