A Message from Our Superintendent

As we continue with the final nine-week period of the 2014-2015 school year, I want to express my appreciation to all of the stakeholders involved with the Artesia Public School system. We've had an exceptional year thus far, and we are looking forward to many educational opportunities and extracurricular activities that will be occurring this spring. The Artesia Public School system truly appreciates the amount of time and effort that our administrators and teachers have spent this year in preparation for the PARCC assessment test. Congratulations to those students who have completed the first assessment and best wishes on the second portion to be taken in April. Thank-you for your tireless efforts, and I hope the remainder of your school year is successful!

It's great to be a Bulldog!

Superintendent Dr. Crit D. Caton
