Principal's Message

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Welcome 2016! As the new year and a new semester begins, we hope you will remind your students of the fresh and exciting possibilities that a new semester offers. Your support and encouragement can go a long way to make sure that your students will maximize their potential. Please take the time to ask your students about their assignments and talk to them about their daily attention and participation in class. Having regular conversations with your students shows them that their education is important and that you are proud of their efforts.

That being said, we still have much more to do, especially in the classrooms. First semester report cards have been issued and I hope that your child was successful. Credit Recovery has begun and students assigned to make up credits there must be attending every class.

Some important dates to be aware of are:

  • Thursday, February 11 – Parent/Teacher Conferences (2-4:30pm and 6-8pm)
  • Thursday, February 11 (2-4pm and 6-8pm) - FAFSA Completion Workshops
  • Friday, February 12 – NO SCHOOL
  • Monday, February 15 – NO SCHOOL (Presidents’ Day)
  • Monday, March 7 – NO SCHOOL (Pulaski Day)
  • March 25 – April 1 – Spring Break

On behalf of the administrative team, faculty, and staff I would like to congratulate all of you on the successful completion of the first semester. We are very proud of the many accomplishments and we excitedly look forward to what the new year brings.


Dr. Dwayne Evans
