    • School policy says that I cannot discuss your child’s grades or behavior via email. I do prefer to talk over the phone when the concern is your child.

  • What is GRIT?

    Grit is working hard towards challenges, maintaining effort and interest over years despite failure, adversity, and plateaus in progress.

    But, we want our kids to do this while maintaining integrity and not leaving their hearts behind as they journey towards a goal.

    We want them to look back and be proudof who they are at the end of their journey.
