Message from Principal
Dear Parents, Families and Caregivers,

Dr. Carolyn Allen-Glass welcomes students and parents to the 2017-2018 school year! On behalf of the staff and myself, I would like to welcome everyone and say how thrilled we are to begin this new school year. We are energized and deeply committed to seeing your child meet their academic goals and achieve proficiency. Our mission is to develop a community of learners, effective communicators and responsible citizens in a caring environment.


To help us meet all of your student’s goals, we expect to see the following everyday:

1) Student’s attending school everyday and arriving on time prepared for the days learning experience.

2) Students respecting all staff.

3) Students completing all homework assignments given by their teacher.

4) Students reading daily in order to develop a love for reading.

5) Students sharing their school experiences with parents/guardians so that you are aware of your child’s school progress.


Our expectations for your students are high and we are confident that they will have great success. We personally challenge our students to make this an outstanding school year and to take advantage of all of the learning experiences that will be presented. We are confident that this effort will go a long way towards helping each child reach their goals. In today’s society, education is imperative when determining future success. It should be something the children cherish and enjoy. Please know that your student’s academic success is our primary goal.


We are looking forward to a great school year. Let’s make this one the best one ever!
