It is with great pleasure that we welcome students and families to the start of a new school year! We have an exciting year planned. A good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort between home, student, and school. Our expectations for conduct and standards for academic growth are high. We are confident this will be a productive, creative and enjoyable eighth grade year together. Welcome back to school!
