Administration

Every day we strive to achieve our mission and live in our purpose. We believe our core values speak volumes about who we are and what we hope to achieve each and every day. Those values are:

  • Integrity

  • Passion

  • Connection

  • Servant Leadership

  • Empowerment

 

When you walk into our school, our hope is that you immediately feel the love and care shown to children from educators who are purposed for this work.  You will quickly become aware of the pride that the students, staff and parents take in our school, and the dedication to learning that we all honor.  We welcome your participation in our work to provide the highest quality education for all of our students.  Together we can accomplish great things!
