    Mr. Tinoco


  • Scorpions,


    I am very excited to be announced as your new Principal for this upcoming school year!  I am coming to you from Bubbling Wells where I was the Principal there for 3 years and previously at James Workman Middle School as an Assistant Principal for 4 years before that.  


    I love being visible and look forward to meeting all of you at some point the first couple months of school.  I have an open door policy so feel free to stop by my office and introduce yourself.  


    We have been working hard in the office to make some changes for this next year that I think our staff and students will love!


    Welcome back to Scorpion Nation!
