Open House Night

Dear Parents,

As you may know, we have been struggling with significantly large class sizes in our 9th and 10th grade classes this fall. The quality of education in a class of 35-40 greatly impacts your child’s experience. As a result, the district has allowed us some additional staffing.

In an endeavor to provide your child with a better learning experience, we have created additional classes. Although having to change some of the schedules is not ideal, please know that we have given a lot of thought to this process. Our goal is that your child will experience as few changes as possible to their present schedule. We project the changes to occur by middle of next week. We will do everything in our power to make these changes as smooth as possible for your child.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 253-945-5614, or Assistant Principal Laurie Bender at 253-945-5612.

Thank you,
Adrienne Chacón
