From the Principal


Congratulations to our 6th graders, we wish you all the best in the next chapters of your lives.  Always remember: Once a Knight, Always a Knight!   We will be here for you whenever you need us.

As everyone prepares to enjoy the sunshine of the summer, the sand between your toes or the late night campfires, don't forget to also read a good book, do a few math problems or create a good science experiment.  Remember, your learning never stops!  

Even though we have closed the doors on another successful school year, we are already hard at work preparing for September.   When you return you will see a completely redesigned secured entry into our building. Constructions crews are hard at work so that it will be finished for your return.   

So why we work hard on the building, you keep working hard on your brains and in September we will merge the two together for another successful school year.

Enjoy your summer and see you in September.

Brian LaPorte

  • Thinkers: They exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to make sound decisions and to solve complex problems.
  • Communicators: They receive and express ideas and information confidently in more than one language, including the language of mathematical symbols.
  • Risk Takers: They approach unfamiliar situations without anxiety and have the confidence and independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They are courageous and articulate in defending those things in which they believe.
  • Knowledgeable: They have spent time in school exploring themes which have global relevance and importance. In doing so, they have acquired a critical mass of significant knowledge.
  • Principled: They have a sound grasp of the principles of moral reasoning. They have integrity, honesty and a sense of fairness and justice.
