We have a strong COMMUNITY of students and staff for the 2013-2014 school year! It is inspiring to visit the classrooms and be involved in the challenging and motivating lessons our students are engaged in every day. No matter the specific role a TEAM member plays; from cook, to teacher, to custodian, all are committed to providing every student with an extremely positive school experience.
