Principal’s Message:

Dear Golden Owls,

Wow how the last four and a half months have flown by! On behalf of our entire staff, I want to express our Vargas Love and appreciation for our entire community’s support of our mission to inspire, prepare, and empower every student.

The first student day back to school after the break is Tuesday, January 7th. After the break we will have new tutoring opportunities for students. Please look for updates in the Wise Word.

Have a happy and healthy December break. Rest up and make some amazing memories. See you in 2020!

We appreciate you for supporting our school and students.

Mr. Taylor
