It's a GREAT time to be a Cardinal!

A great education starts with the student in mind.  At Staples Motley, we recognize that each child is an individual – with talents, challenges, and dreams of the future.

We know that our job is to provide each student with the structure, encouragement, and opportunity for lifelong learning. Our schools offer the perfect blend of small town and big thinking.

We are committed to offering a wide variety of learning programs from birth to adult, both in the classroom and out in the community.

And we want to hear from you...

Our school district is working to better communicate school news and information with our community.  We need your help to achieve this important goal.  

Please complete our very short survey by April 30, 2016.  The survey will only take a few minutes but will help guide us as we move forward.  You may complete the survey online or by returning the postcard sent with your Cardinal Chronicle.   Start Survey Now!
