We are looking forward to an exciting 2017-2018 school year. We hope you are enjoying your summer thus far and are ready to embrace the challenges that lead to excellence. With excellence there is GREATNESS!
Here's a thought for you to remember.......
"Greatness is the rightful destiny of every person.
Yet, most of our society never experiences this extraordinary level of achievement. It is ironic that the climate of excellence is available, but many do not recognize the opportunities that are bountiful in life. Great men and women know the secret of greatness for it is universal. Sincere effort, a humble heart and the desire to improve others can raise the station of an ordinary individual into one of extraordinary achievement."
