A Message from Our Superintendent

As we enter the final nine-week period of the 2018–2019 school year, I encourage each of our students to finish the year strong! Best wishes to those students who will be taking the upcoming PARCC assessment test. All your preparation will soon pay off! Thank you for your tireless efforts, and I hope the remainder of your school year is successful.

I hope that many of you are able to attend many of the exciting activities that will be taking place in our district this spring. Our staff and parents are second to none, and I appreciate the support that you have given our students throughout the entire year.

It's great to be a Bulldog!
