Principal's Message

Dear Caryn Families,

First, I want to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year. With the New Year comes much excitement. Staff has worked extremely hard over the summer and the last few days getting classes ready for students. It is such an honor to work with such dedicated teachers and support personnel who put the best interest of children as their forefront.
I’m happy to announce that this year’s district theme is “Power up for Student Success.” As you walk classrooms or the campus you may see a great deal of bulletin boards and other items related to this theme.
In other news, our school was recognized by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence as a 2014 Honor Roll recipient. Way to go Cougars! Our site stood out among thousands because of our success to get students to higher levels of achievement and beyond. We did not apply for this award, they found us!
In close, I welcome you to the new school year. We have much in store for our youngsters as we take them to new heights in pursuit of Excellence in Education!

Best Wishes,
Mr. Tavolazzi
