TITLE I - Information for Families

Our Learning Community

All children are born as a blank slate.  It is "our" responsibility as educators, parents, and community members to fill it wisely. What will our blue print look like? A strong foundation is the most important component. A love of learning, a thirst for knowledge, an ability to form and maintain strong friendships, and an appreciation and respect for the making of responsible citizens are essential ingredients.

Our goal is to provide many opportunities for students, teachers, and parents to expand their knowledge and build strong successful relationships.
