Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to express my excitement and readiness for another successful school year. As our faculty has taken the summer to rejuvenate, they have also been enhancing their skills by taking part in professional development and working on advanced degrees in order to serve your students with a combination of cutting edge methods and best practices.
It cannot be expressed enough how vital and important you are to our mission of educating your students. Your input is paramount to our success. If we work together, we cannot go wrong.
We are expecting approximately 1500 students to enroll this fall. The maintenance crew has been working diligently to prepare the building and we have a few exciting changes around the building this year as well. We have seven renovated rooms:
- The LRC is remodeled with new furniture and state-of-the-art computers.
- The driver’s education room has been converted into two state of the art computer labs.
- The in-school suspension room (rename: Intervention Center) is remodeled.
- Rooms 108 and 201 are being remodeled.
- The aerobics room has been remodeled and converted into a fitness center.
- One of the science labs will be equipped with a vertical display.
Needless to say, we have a lot of changes to start the new year. Some of these projects will not be completed until after the school year begins, so please bear with us as we make these improvements to our facilities.
Most importantly for your students, please note that the bell schedule has changed.
