Check Out Our Blue Party!  We celebrated that we exceeded growth for the 2014-15 school year and we raised our letter grade to a C.  By exceeding growth that means that our students on average made more than one year’s worth of growth in one year’s time.  Thank you to all of the support from parents, families, the community, and the staff in order to have such huge gains in student achievement! Here’s to another amazing year with huge gains in student achievement!Blue Party.jpg

"We're in the Blue" means our school exceeded growth and our students on average made more than one year's worth of growth in one year's time!
