A Message from Our Superintendent

As we enter into the final semester of the 2017-2018 school year, I want to express my appreciation to all 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, teachers, and staff have spent this year in “Keeping Our Students First.” Thank you for your tireless efforts, and I hope the remainder of your school year is successful!

Superintendent Dr. Crit D. Caton
