Principal's Message

According to Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. We look forward to a brand new school full of energy and optimism; ready to face the challenges and excitement that a new school year brings.  We welcome our students back to school and invite parents to stay abreast of their child’s education.  The opportunities for academic success, attendance recognition, and participation in athletics, clubs and organizations are all part of providing our students with a well-rounded education.  As educators, we can “Change the World” by providing our students the best opportunities for LEARNING. We have the power to inspire and prepare our Cavaliers to possess the skills and knowledge for the 21st Century.  Our students are our future and it is our obligation to provide them with the tools to “Change their World”!
