Welcome to the Bulldog Principal's Corner!
Welcome to our 2017-18 School Year!!! We are gearing up and working around all of the construction as we prepare for our exciting rennovations! This is going to be a great year as we welcome additional staff members and students. We are looking at around 600 students for this coming year. We will continue our high expectations for all of our students as we keep them engaged and learning in every classroom so that they may reach their highest potential.
Please make a time each day to encouraging your child/ren to read 20 minutes each night. Having a family member or friend ask probing questions about the daily reading will help students improve their ability to focus, and comprehend their newly acquired knowledge.
We appreciate your help as we work to make sure that your child/ren are at school on time and ready to learn. Remember that doors open at 7:25 a.m. this school year. We serve breakfast every day before the school day begins.
