Dear Dolphin Families,
At the forefront of our work is planning for the growth that our school district is experiencing. In addition, we need to increase instructional space, accommodate full-day kindergarten, provide classrooms to lower elementary class sizes, expand curriculum offerings, enhance student safety and security, and improve the overall quality of student life. The Capital Projects Bond on the February 9 ballot will address these needs.
