Conrad Bi-Weekly Memo September 1st, 2023

Principal's Message

Greetings, Conrad families! A warm and enthusiastic welcome to the start of the 2023-2024 school year. We are thrilled to share the fantastic news of a successful first week back. The past few days have been filled with dynamic activities, ranging from icebreakers and team-building exercises tailored for our new 6th and 9th graders, to the seamless distribution of Chromebooks. This week’s schedule also included assemblies, where CSS information and expectations were shared, all while basking in the glow of Red Wolf pride.

As the Principal, I'm genuinely excited about the ongoing collaboration with CSS families and our beloved school community. It's an honor for me to assume the responsibility of serving this community, fully aware of the privilege of offering unparalleled opportunities to our students. Here's to a remarkable school year ahead!
