Principal's Message

 Parents and Family Members:

Thank you to the families that joined us for our Sonic Family Night. Sonic donated a portion of the sales and that amounted to more than $100! Our next Sonic Family Night is November 13. Please join us.
The Fall Carnival is October 30 from 3:30-5:30 PM. Students may wear their costumes to the festival. Please remember that all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education.

Information on Breakfast and the 7:35 Bell
The gym doors open at 7:15 am or a little earlier depending on the bus arrivals. School begins at 7:35 AM. Therefore, the cut-off time for breakfast is 7:30. However, if a school bus is late, the breakfast time is extended. Parents, if you drop off your child for school and would like them to eat breakfast, please have them here before 7:30 AM.
Thank. you.
This year's theme:
"There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs"
Secure Pick-Up Procedures
The last PE class ends at 2:05 pm. After the students are picked up, the tables are set down for secure pick up. The purpose of the tables is to control the proper release of students to adults. Without a barrier, children may run to an adult they recognize- defeating the purpose of secure pick up.
It is our goal to open the gym doors at 2:10 pm daily. Thank you.
Parent Handbooks for Benchmark
Here are the parent handbooks for our 1st quarter benchmarks.
