Principal's Corner
Welcome To All Students, Parents, and Guardians!

We hope you are all just as excited as we are to work together to offer encouragement and support for your child during this school year, and as a result see academic and social growth in your child.

We believe that a strong partnership between families and staff is essential to inspire, challenge and empower our students! We need your support to assist your child in attending school regularly and on time. We invite you to play an active role in your child’s education. Ask questions, come to events and show your child that school and learning are the keys to success! 

We will offer a 90:10 immersion model for two sections of Kindergarten and two sections of 1st grade.  This program will be filled as part of the district-wide options in Rochester Public Schools Kindergarten registration process.   The Spanish Immersion program will offer instruction during the day primarily in Spanish.  Classroom teachers will instruct in Spanish (reading, math, social studies, science).  Students will have special area classes in English.  Teachers are licensed elementary teachers proficient in Spanish and English.  This program will cover the same curriculum and holds the same standards for success as our traditional kindergarten and 1st grade programs.
