A Message from Our Superintendent

Welcome back! It's hard to believe, but the new school year is upon us. There are many exciting things in store for our students, including new teachers to meet, new technology and curriculum to explore, and new skills to master. The Artesia Public School District is looking forward to sharing in those exciting times.

Our students receive the best education possible when our parents and our teachers work as a team. It is parental enthusiasm, support, and involvement that help inspire children to do their best. Our dedicated staff will work extremely hard teaching your child the educational concepts to help them become successful. Parents, I encourage you to fully embrace this school year, and I encourage you to take the time to become familiar with your student's school and teacher(s). Together we can achieve wonderful things!

It's great to be a Bulldog!

Dr. Crit Caton
