    Go Grizzlies!!


    Welcome  Grizzlies

    Parents, students, and staff,

    I  hope each and everyone had a relaxing enjoyable break.  As you all know I have taken the Superintendent/Principal position and I can’t wait to meet all the staff and students. I am looking forward to this school year and the opportunities it will bring to all. We have some new teachers that I know will be assets to this school as well as to the community. I feel it is a great privilege to have the opportunity to lead your home school district. I want the students in Carrizozo to know their greatness, and that their dreams can come true.  Carrizozo Schools has had many graduates accomplish many great things. It is truly an honor and a blessing to have the opportunity to serve this school and community.
