•      It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Alternative School at Lamar.  Each new school year brings about new opportunities for learning and a new commitment to become productive citizens in life. 

         I challenge each student to not look back at the past, but look forward to the future and seize the opportunities that have been directed your way.  What may have happened is over and it is time to move forward to new beginning and it starts here today. 

         I have personally challenged the faculty and staff here at the Alternative School to raise the bar academically and to expose each and every student to programs and interventions that will help them develop social skills that will ensure their success. 

         I am committed to working with you in a positive, respectful, and professional manner.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have in order to work together to make our school successful.  Parents you are integral part of your child’s education.
