Our PK-8 structure allows us to be unique within the district, yet able to coordinate at the early childhood (PK-8), elementary (3-5), and middle (6-8) with our colleagues. The School Council supports the goals, objectives, and activities which are consistent with the school and district missions. Financial support through the budget process enables our PK-8 culture to thrive.
