Principal's Message

         Raider Family,


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  This year will be defined from the start, as one of tremendous breakthroughs!  Breakthroughs in student performance like never before.


Together, we have taken great strides to build a team with a common vision who can rise to the occasion and meet the needs of our students.  We must remain focused and diligent to the goals we have set in order to achieve greatness.


Tony Robbins, American author, philanthropist and life coach, defines a breakthrough as, “A moment in time when the impossible becomes possible.” This is OUR time and we must prepare ourselves for the task ahead this year. 


Our Raider will soar for all to see and our students and will reap the rewards, as our service to them will be nothing short of masterful.  Are you ready for the quantum leap?  Let’s do this, RAIDER PRIDE, ALL DAY, EVERYDAY!
