We're a Team
Our team realizes that teaching your child is a privilege as well as a tremendous responsibility. We will do our best this year to make sure that each student has a motivating and positive learning experience. However, we can not do this alo (rne: we need your help. We all need to be partners in the learning process. We need each of you to encourage your child at home by helping ensure that they have completed their assignments and studied for exams. If a problem should arise or if you have any questions or concerns please call or email us. It is going to be an amazing year!
8th Grade Students will enter the building through the 8th Grade Academy doors until 7:45. At 7:45, students are late and need to report to the Main Office to get a late pass.
