I. Triton Awards! Start recognizing those great students of yours. Give them the shell award and have them find me at lunch or in my office for a treat. I always call their parents and it makes for great community building with your classroom. We will also start recognizing students weekly for the Triton Traits (In this case, Kindness). Go to the Hyperdoc to fill out a form and recognize an awesome kid for being kind.

J. Salute to Teachers and Tara Taylor. We hope to see you all out on September 15th in support of Tara Taylor. Click this link to purchase tickets. Way to go Tara!

A Message from our Assistant Principals!

Dr. Shannon Chamberlin and Mendel Nafarrete

Please be aware that several students were found participating in a game called Passout where they hyperventilate for 30 seconds and then hold their breath in attempt to faint. It's a dangerous game that can cause serious damage to the students. We will be discussing this game with the students and parents.
