Letter from the Principal

Fall Greetings,snow

Thank you for everyone who enthusiastically supported our student-led conferences.  As research supports, these conferences help to enable your young person to be accountable for their learning.   We all learn differently through different avenues and this process helps young people understand how they learn.  It also allows us to learn how to best serve you and your young person so they are successful. Thank you for your continued support.

The new lights were installed in the gym October 9th.  Please stop by and admire the efficient lighting in our gym.

We are coming to a close in the month of October.

  • 11:00 AM – Thanksgiving Feast

As a reminder, the second annual Thanksgiving Feast will be Friday, November 17 at 11 a.m.  This is our time to serve you, our young people and families.  We have a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, bread and cookie, along with a drink. I work with Publix to cater this event, as we did last year. Thankfully, our room moms make this a reality as they serve our students.  Our students eat with their buddies and we celebrate that we are a family, united together.
