A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Welcome to the 2024-2025 school year!  Thank you, parents and guardians,  for entrusting your children into our care. We commit to keep them safe and support them throughout their educational journey with our school system. We aspire for every child to love their school experience and to create fond memories that will last a lifetime. Our ultimate goal is to prepare them for life after high school. We want them to be able to secure high wage jobs and/or be prepared for college, if they choose that pathway. We want them to be productive citizens who contribute to our community and increase our quality of life in our great parish.

Our theme for the 2024-25 school year is “Accept the Challenge.” Our focus will be to accept the challenges and strive to lift our students to their full potential!   We encourage our employees, families and students to join in our efforts to accomplish our goal by being intentional in our thoughts, words, and actions this year.  We can accomplish more by working together!
