School Improvement Plan

A message from Mr. Aviles about our SIP:

“Our theme this year is “A New Hope.” “A New Hope” was the first Star Wars movie; hence we have filled our PPT presentation with Star Wars characters. We chose “A New Hope” as our theme for this year because we felt that after our “Charting the Course” year last year there was a new hope in the air about what this year was going to offer.”
