Welcome to Artesia

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.

As the new school year begins, please remember that our students receive the best education possible when our parents and our staff work as a team. Parental enthusiasm, support, and involvement are essential ingredients that help inspire our children to do their best. Please stress to your child the importance of on-time school attendance, appropriate behavior, and completion of schoolwork. 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!

Superintendent Dr. Crit D. Caton
