Happy 4th of July!

Wishing everyone a Happy Independence Day! We hope everyone is enjoying the sun (finally!) and time with family and friends.

Congratulations to our new Principal & Assistant Principal!

Great news from Superintendent Baker – Mrs. Chandra Leonardo will be our Principal for the 2023-2024 school year! Her Assistant Principal is Mr. Jared Bosnich, joining us from the Jefferson Elementary School District where he has dedicated the last decade as an English language arts, English language development (ELD), and resource specialist (RSP) teacher at Benjamin Franklin Intermediate School. Congratulations, Mrs. Leonardo & Welcome, Mr. Bosnich! For more from Dr. Baker:

Summer is for reading too!

Students gain a better sense of themselves and their world through reading literature and rich non-fiction. When students consistently practice reading over the summer, they improve their reading fluency, vocabulary, and overall comprehension. Cultivating independent summer reading habits fosters a love for reading and encourages lifelong learning practices. Check out the ALSC 6-8 Summer Reading List and book it to your local library today!

Summer Reading List:
