Our Mission

A Message from our Principal

Principal Julie CaseDear Falcon Families,

The year is off to a great start! Each day, we look forward to seeing our students enjoy learning. As a staff, we are deeply committed to making a positive difference in their lives. We work diligently to build a community where students take risks and persevere as they approach new concepts and strive for mastery of the state standards. We are partners in your child’s education and look forward to working together to make certain that all students have the skills necessary to reach their potential. 

We also want to thank families for all of the school supplies that students have brought in this year. Caring Neighbors made a generous donation and our community continues to donate many needed items. All donations are much appreciated! We truly thank you.

We have many events occurring in the months ahead such as volleyball, tutoring, Gym Games, and PTA meetings. If you have not joined the PTA we urge you to do so. They are a group that actively supports students and education. We also want families to know that we do have two open seats on our site council for parents. If you are interested, applications are available in our office. Please check our calendar to see what is coming up. We hope to see you at our school events!
