Samuel Watson Elementary School

 

WELCOME TO 2015!

Thank you to the parents, guardians, students and staff for making the past four months of 2014 a success!  We have seen many positive changes in and out of our school.  I am certain, that if we continue to work as a community, there will be many more positive changes in our building.  Together, we can turn our school from good to GREAT!!!
