  • Dear Parents, Students, Teachers, Staff, and Community Stakeholders,

    Welcome to the 2024-2025 school year! We are thrilled to embark on this exciting journey with our theme, "Wild About Learning." This year promises to be one filled with incredible growth, discovery, and achievement for our students. It is with great pride that we share some wonderful updates and accomplishments with you.

    Firstly, we are delighted to announce that our school has officially become a Cambridge school. This prestigious affiliation aligns us with a global standard of education that emphasizes critical thinking, problem-solving, and a broad understanding of the world. Our commitment to academic excellence remains steadfast, and this new partnership will provide our students with even more opportunities to excel.

    In addition to this significant milestone, we are pleased to report a remarkable 5-point increase in our academic achievement scores. This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teachers, staff, and students. We are incredibly proud of these achievements and will continue our relentless pursuit of academic excellence. Our educators are passionate about fostering a love for learning and ensuring that every student reaches their full potential.

    As we celebrate these successes, we also want to emphasize our unwavering commitment to the safety and security of our school community. Ensuring a safe and nurturing environment for your children remains our top priority. We have implemented comprehensive safety measures and protocols to ensure that our school is a secure place for students to learn and grow.

    Please trust that the amazing educators charged with instructing our young learners are prepared and committed to meeting the challenges presented by our current educational reality. They are motivated and inspired by their passion for teaching and learning and are eager to build strong partnerships with each family that will facilitate student growth and development.

    Our collaborative efforts and steadfast commitment to our children’s success will ensure a productive and successful 2024-2025 school year. Thus, I invite you to take an active role in our school community by attending family nights and SAC meetings and by joining our PTA. Furthermore, if you are interested in volunteering on campus or for any field trips, you must be cleared as a volunteer. The website for the volunteer background clearance is
