Technology plays a large part in 21st century learning and devices in the classroom will enable students to access online resources, research instantly, collaborate and communicate in ways that were not possible before. It also equalizes the playing field for students in preparation for career and college. Our goal is to equip students and teachers with the right tools to enhance classroom learning. This will support students' path to be college and career ready.

    Celebrating 20 years of Excellence


    Welcome Back Giants!

                  I am honored to continue to be your principal for the 16/17 school year. Last year we introduced Chromebooks and tablets to the classroom and overall it was a great success. Our teachers and students have been taking advantage of the technology in the classroom and it has raised the rigor in student achievement. We are excited about continuing to open up our educational experiences with technology and build on their current knowledge of the Common Core Standards. Please come to our Back to School Night on Wednesday, August 10th from 6:00-7:00 to meet the teacher and learn more about the technology implementation in the classroom.

    During the year we encourage families to participate in our family engagement activities and committees. If you are interested in signing up for our PTC, English Learner Advisory Committee, Watch DOGS (Dad’s Of Great Students), School Site Council or our Family Engagement Team please sign up at Back to School Night or come by the office to inquire about dates and times. We look forward to an exciting new year and can’t wait for our students to be back on campus!


    Mr. Plaa

    Principal of the Sam Vaughn Giants
