Rich Pond Family,

We feel very fortunate to be at a great school where parents, students, and staff are all on the same page.  We are most proud that our students are loved, cared for, and are supportive of one another.  This creates an environment for high academic achievement.

We have an amazing staff, and we view each adult here as a teacher.  Although we are known for our consistently high academic achievement, including our being named a 1997 & 2017 Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education, there is so much more that I am proud of.  We teach our students to be kind, mannerly, respectful, and helpful.  We also teach them to be leaders in their own way and to do their best at everything they do.  Each day I am thankful for our school and every person within it.

Our vision is for all students and staff to feel safe, to have positive relationships among all members of our school community, and to help students experience success.  Our door is always open and we are here to serve the needs of your child.   As we work diligently to help them succeed, your input plays a critical role in this.  Do not hesitate to call on us at any time to let us know how we can help.
