Hello Jag Families!

We're thrilled to be closing out the year on such a high note, with the excitement of celebrating our 8th graders at the upcoming Promotion ceremony and BBQ/Party event. It's the perfect way to cap off a fantastic year and honor the hard work and dedication of our students.  

We have so much gratitude for the incredible journey we've shared together alongside the best students ever and their fabulous families!  Parents, your support throughout this year has been invaluable, and we're immensely grateful for your continued involvement.  A heartfelt thank you to our dedicated Boosters for their unwavering commitment to our school community. Your efforts have made a significant impact, and we're truly appreciative of everything you do.

Wishing you all a safe, enjoyable, and rejuvenating summer break and we look forward to seeing  you next fall!

Go Jags,

Library Books:

Just a reminder to our families that many of our students have outstanding text and library books from previous years. Unfortunately, not only does this affect the number of books we have available to other students, if they have not turned in or paid for all books by the end of 8th grade they will not receive their promotion certificate. We don't want that to happen.

In addition to notices and emails they receive, I remind them when they're in the library that they need to return their books. Many say they have it at home and will try to bring it in. Can you please help by reminding your kiddos to return their books? 

If you would like information on what books your student may have outstanding, please feel free to email me at

Thank you!
