A Message from our Superintendent of Schools

Greetings and Happy New Year!

The New Year provides a wonderful time for reflection – reviewing the past years’ gains and losses, as well as deliberation of what’s to come.   The first half of this school year has been a whirlwind of blessings!  I have enjoyed getting to know our staff, our community and our students.  As we enter into the year 2018, I look forward to the manifestation of greatness!  With our dedicated staff, committed parents and supportive community, our students have all they need to reach their highest potential.  

For the remainder of the school year, we will work tirelessly to provide our students with the optimal learning environment!  We will continuously strive for excellence and I can’t wait to see what’s in store!  

Please look for our upcoming events and join us as we work collectively and collaboratively to push our students to the next level of success!  

Sincerely,

Mrs. Johnnetta Miller
