Superintendent's Message
While the official month for principal recognition may be ending, it's always a good day to show our principals how much they are appreciated. 
Principals arrive early to greet students and stay late to meet with families and staff. Principals are the glue that holds together all the important parts that make up our thriving schools. They help others to do their best. Please join me in appreciating your child’s principal!
