Millions of students, grades 4-12, will be taught life changing social skills cored in resilience, inclusion & kindness as we focus on inspiring the next generation of our country’s leaders & the power of just one person to bring forth real change, starting right now, in their own school.

The event will feature some of today’s top names in sport, entertainment & education. Denis Estimon (We Dine Together, Be Strong) & Jessie Funk (best-selling author, Broadway performer & motivational speaker) will be the keynote speakers/trainer. Music will be performed by America’s Got Talent fan favorites, Linkin’ Bridge and Kechi.

Welcome Back Students & Families!

It's great to see new and returning faces. We know the next couple weeks are filled with days off. Please remember to send your children to school on time everyday. Uniforms continue to be available each day in the main office for students and are $8.00 each. Please make sure your child comes to school with their uniform every single day. We officially began collecting cell phones from students each morning. If you have any questions or concerns about that policy, please feel free to contact school administration. In the upcoming weeks we will begin administering diagnostics to get a better sense of your child's reading and math levels. It is extremely important that your child is present and taking these exams to ensure we teach as best as possible. We are really excited about our upcoming Family Night BBQ that will take place on Thursday September 20, 2018 from 4pm - 7pm. We hope you are all able to attend and if you can join our PTA to assist us in raising money for our students and school to get them as many resources as we can.
