From The Principal

Dear Chieftain Families,


Fall has certainly arrived. It’s apple picking weather. Temperatures have fallen, leaves are changing, and it is getting darker earlier. The latter of those is pretty important. As we make our way into school over the next few weeks before that first Sunday in November, it’s going to be dark in the a.m. Please drive slowly, give kids time to cross the street, and honor our crossing-guards with the respect they deserve for being out there. Safety is our first priority, and it is a shared responsibility.
