    • Chill out area
    • Parent Contact
    • Note Sent Home
    • Disciplinary Action


                 Students are expected to follow school wide expectations and the county code of student conduct at ALL TIMES.

                When misbehavior or non-compliance occurs, I like to deal with it within my classroom.  I will do my best to work with you and your child to come up with a solution to improve student performance in the school setting.  It is for that reason that two of my four steps involve parental contact.  If we work together, I believe we can make a wonderful difference in the life of our student.

                If you have any questions, concerns or information that you would like to share with me, feel free to contact me at any time. Please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as I possibly can.  I look forward to getting to know you as the year progresses.  Let’s make it a great year!


    I expect student to put forth their best effort and try to learn the material.

    I expect student to be on their best behavior.

    I expect students to be respectful of others in the classroom.
