Please know that we miss our students as we prepare remote learning each week. Students will be exposed to new curriculum goals and have the opportunity to participate in one class meeting per class per week with their teachers. Students will demonstrate their learning based on curriculum goals. As always, I want to thank you for your continued support of our school community. We miss our students and hope that all families are safe and doing well at this time. -James Martin IV, Principal
