Principal's Corner

December 2016

As we approach the end of another semester of school, I would like to thank our teachers, students, and parents for making the first half our school year a success.  Our students and teachers continue to work hard and have fun as we progress through the school year.  

As we begin a new semester, I would like to remind you of how important good attendance is towards the success of your child.  All students are expected to attend school regularly and to be on time for classes in order to benefit maximally from the instructional program and to develop habits of punctuality, self-discipline,and responsibility. There is a direct relationship between poor attendance and class failure. Students who have good attendance generally achieve higher grades and are happier at school.  For more guidelines regarding the Franklin County attendance policy, please see the handbook located on our school website.  

I look forward to another great semester as I watch your child(ren) learn, grow, and succeed.
