Principal's Message


Welcome back everyone! I am very enthusiastic about the coming year as we will continue to build on the growth generated last year. Specifically, we will continue to grow and deepen our academic program in terms of both curriculum and instruction. Together, we will aim "to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect." We will build positive relationships with students and families, hold high expectations for all students and maintain a safe and supporting learning environment.

I strongly encourage each of you to volunteer and join our PTO. Our goal will be to match your skills to our school's needs as well as be creative about the ways we can get parents involved in new ways to support student learning. I believe that having a positive partnership with families is a must!

My goal is to learn every child's name and know them as learners and citizens. Furthermore, our students know that they can come to the office to share something positive they have done at school or something they are proud of - the school's office is a place to celebrate student achievement. Our teachers even recognize students for going above and beyond with Positive Referrals. Students who are awarded with a Positive Referral will be rewarded for their efforts by myself and my administrative assistant.

I am truly overjoyed to lead and participate in such a fantastic school. Together, we will do incredible things for student learning. We are educating our future! Let's Go, Lions!
