Principal's Letter

November 15, 2019

As we near the Thanksgiving Holiday season, the Tesla Staff and I would like to say thank you to our parents and families for your solid support and for your commitment to education.  We have the pleasure of educating your daughters and sons every day, and we are humbled by students’ work ethic and focus on global stewardship…solutions for the common good.  Thank you for entrusting us with your young adults. 

Tesla Scholars and Minecraft

Our students are invested in working with other schools to use Minecraft for design work and for PBL student projects.  Tesla students in this photo are skyping with students in New Jersey to talk about Minecraft and how they are using it in their schools.  Design work and project identification across the states!!  Great job all around.
