Principal's Corner

Hang On Tight!!

August 8, 2017

Dear Parents & Guardians, 

Welcome Back!!

The success of our schools are directly tied to your support of us and your child.  We are excited to launch many new routines and practices to improve our teaching so we can improve your scholar’s learning.  We have been planning since the moment school got out in May.  We want to do a better job for our kids!


Here are a few of the new things you can expect as we go into this year.

  • Launching our PRIDE values as Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Enthusiasm
  • Tight instructional schedules and student routines to maximize learning time.
  • Calling our students “scholars” to promote them as amazing learners with high expectations while also asking them to consider themselves as professional students.
  • Plans for increasing attendance of students.
  • Increased support for scholars who have more behavioral needs.
  • Promotion of our Dean of Students to an Assistant Principal.
  • New outdoor LED sign to better communicate with our parents and community.
  • Ongoing professional development for staff to improve their teaching.


We are excited to begin the work we planned in our redesign.  Please contact me at any time for questions or concerns. 

Donetta Rankin Jones, Your Proud Principal
