Principal's Welcome Message
It is our privilege to extend a warm welcome to our website.  As you navigate through the various segments, we hope to share some of the special elements that produce an enriching and meaningful environment for our children.  We heartily endorse the six pillars of character education that foster stronger levels of caring and responsibility for citizenship and civility in today's world.

Our curriculum is solidly grounded in the implementation of the Common Core Standards, which serve as our guideposts and benchmarks for all instructional decisions.  It is our hope to introduce you to a school that produces self-confident, self-reliant, and highly focused students while addressing individual needs.

We are available to meet with you and provide a personal tour of our facilities.  You are encouraged to call our office, 615-885-8918, to learn more about our neighborhood - one that embraces high student achievement and advances social-emotional growth in all students.

  Character Counts

Word for the week:  Kindness
A person of character doesn't blame others carelessly. A person of character takes turns, shares, is open-minded, and doesn't take advantage of others.

If you ever have any questions may call the school office at 885-8918 or email  Mrs. Wood, our principal,  ,our secretary,  , or you may contact, the librarian/webmistress,   .
