Principal Message

Parents,


It has been a great week! Thank you for sharing your sweet children with all of us.


As we enter the second week of school, you will begin to see the students and staff settle into the arrival and dismissal procedures. The process should become an efficient and effective routine with safety at the forefront. Thank you for your support and understanding as we receive and dismiss about 860 students.


We encourage all parents, even parents with little tigers, to let your students walk to class on their own. We will have safety patrol and staff members available to help assist them to their classroom as needed. Again, this gives them confidence and helps build leadership.


We have our annual Grandparent Celebration coming up on Sept.9th. This year it is called Lunch with Loved Ones. We will share more information surrounding the procedures a little later. If you have a loved one that will be here, be sure to stop by the front office and get a RAPTOR Badge in advance. We can print one if they have ever been in our building or if we have their driver's license to scan. We will hold on to the badge until Sept. 9th. By being proactive and letting us know you will be here, we can let loved ones go to the cafeteria faster on your special day. Thank you!



Thank you,

Tara Bailey
