Principal's Message

As our second term is about to begin, I thought it time to update everyone on some of the happenings and future considerations for our school.  The most noticeable and needed change is that our upstairs hallways are being painted for the first time in probably 40 years.  The new paint job will brighten the halls and the spirits of our second floor classes!

We continue to update our technology base with the purchase of two new Chromebook portable labs.  I am pleased with how our staff is embracing the use of these labs which allow students to have instant access to the Internet and to be able to share their work with teachers and fellow students.  We have to thank the efforts of our PAC and the parents who volunteered their time at our last casino in assisting us with cost of the new computers.

We are hoping to draw on our PAC once again with two new initiatives that our staff are hoping to bring to fruition.  Mrs, Falcone and a group of staff are working on a proposal to create an outdoor classroom and garden area in the nursery area at the rear of the school.  Mrs. Falcone will make a presentation at our next PAC meeting to describe her vision for this project.  We also are enlisting the assistance of a consultant to help with a redesign of our library.  The gym area will also be outfitted with a fm sound system to improve communication and sound quality.  We have a fantastic building and we are committed to upgrading our various classrooms to provide the most comfortable, useful learning environments possible.
