We are honored to present these students. This is an extraordinary honor bestowed on a student by a homeroom teacher. Our school has very high expectations for all of our students; we seek to instill and inspire integrity, sportsmanship, kindness, perseverance, good citizenship, and high academic achievement. To be recognized in this way is indeed a testament to these students’ outstanding qualities and to the impact of family support.

Wear a Face Covering and Bring a Water Bottle

Be sure to send your child to school with a water bottle each day. Our water fountains can only be used as filling stations.

Stay hydrated!

Students must wear a clean mask or shield to school each day.

(We have a VERY limited supply of masks to replace ones that break during the day.)

Stay safe and keep others safe!
