A Message from Our Superintendent

As we enter into the final nine-week period of the 2013-2014 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 Standards Based 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 2013-2014 school year. It's great to be a Bulldog!
