A Message from our Principal

Happy Spring Cheetah Families!

This is an incredibly important time of the year. The month of April is time for state testing. Our students and staff have been diligently working to gain the knowledge needed to move on to their next grade level. An important part of both learning and teaching is assessment. We value the data collected from assessing because it informs us of what our students have learned and what they are ready for next.

We want to encourage our Cheetahs to look forward to testing. This is their time to shine and show what they’ve learned! Your support is very important. Please ensure your children have a good night’s rest, eat a healthy breakfast, arrive to school on time, and stay for the entire day. They deserve every opportunity to succeed that we can give them.

We greatly appreciate your continued support and encouragement! Your role on this team makes all the difference!

Yours in partnership,

Mimi Renteria
