Message from Dr. Celico:
It's hard to believe I have passed the 100 day mark as Superintendent of Schools. In the event that you were unable to make it to my address, I wanted to ensure that you had the link to the video and also a "cliff notes" version of the presentation in the event you are unable to dedicate the time to watch the hour-long video..
I believe in this district and I believe in this team. We must first recognize the importance of our roles in our children's lives, take responsibility, be open to change, and work hard to encourage our students to do their best.
I must ensure that you have the tools, resources, and training you need to be successful. Thank you for a great first 100 days and I look forward to many more. Enjoy your time with your family and friends.
Go Black Tigers!
It's officially happening!

Most of us think of our Tiger mascot as the one they knew when they graduated. But how many tigers have we had? Here are a few from our history, as reported in class yearbooks over the years.
