A Message from Our Superintendent

As we enter into the final semester of the 2016-2017 school year, I hope that each of our students is ready to finish the year strong. The Artesia Public School system truly appreciates the amount of time and effort that each of our students has spent this year turning their dreams into goals and their goals into realities. Best wishes to those students who will be taking the upcoming PARCC Assessment. All of your preparation will soon pay off! Thank-you for your tireless efforts, and I hope the remainder of your school year is successful.

Our staff and parents are second to none, and I appreciate the support that you have given our students throughout the entire 2016-2017 school year. It's great to be a Bulldog!

It's great to be a Bulldog!
