  From the Principal's Desk 

Welcome to the 2014–2015 school year!  We hope that you are having an enjoyable and safe summer. It has been a busy summer as the Alice Drive support staff and teachers have worked very hard preparing for our school opening and are looking forward to seeing our returning families and those families new to our school.

 

Our school staff is looking forward to another year of continuous academic improvement. Our students will continue to be challenged with rigorous instructional programs that are aligned to our state standards. We value the belief that open communication and continued support from parents, students, teachers, administrators, and the community is the key to promoting successful schools.  We must work together to ensure all of our students achieve at their highest level. I believe the 2014–2015 school year will be our best ever.
