Happy Holidays my Fellow Wolves,
It is truly the most wonderful time of year. It is hard to believe 2018 is almost over! We’ve seen so many accomplishments this year, and there is more to do. Our staff and students are working hard to ensure that our vision and mission are meaningful and not just words on a poster hanging in the building. Our vision, Excellence for Everyone!, and mission, which ensures all students will graduate college and career ready, cannot be fulfilled without the support of our parents and community partners.
