We are excited to begin a new school year. Our theme this year is ENSEMBLE: A Group of People Working Together for a Common Goal. We are ecstatic about the new and returning AAA family teachers, students, and parents. Our goal is to help our families feel safe and continue academic achievement as transition through the new school year.

I want you to know the focus will be on keeping a safe and engaged learning environment while ensuring all students are mastering the necessary standards. We will work as an ENSEMBLE to help increase student achievement. We will accomplish this goal by continuing to build strong parent, teacher, and student relationships, creating relevant and arts integrated lessons, focusing on standards mastery, and strengthening our parent and community involvement. We are determined a productive, effective, and enjoyable school year. Additionally, we will continue to focus on the five pillars that Huntsville City Schools is focusing on. These pillars are improving student achievement, developing the whole student academically, socially and emotionally, increasing teacher network and growth, sustaining efficient operations with a safe environment and enhancing community connectedness.

It is my belief that we have AAAmazing faculty, staff, students and parents. We will work as an ENSEMBLE to make sure this year is a success. This is a Mr. Grumpy’s Toy Shoppe year. You will learn more information about this production. It involves all Pre-K through 5th grade students and students 6th-8th grade that desire to join the cast and crew. We are so excited about this production. The performance dates will be December 2-11, 2022. Look out for more information.
