From the Principal
Read every night with your child. Read to him; read along side him; have him read to you and he can read to a younger sibling.
Have your child read a book, magazine, newspaper, back of a cereal box or comic book. Reading helps build fluency, vocabulary, imagination, focus and confidence. There is no better gift to give your child than the love of reading!
With the support of parents, community and staff, we are able to Build and Enhance Success in all students.
In Devoted Service,
Lisa M. Carter
