A note from Leah....

As we head down the final stretch remember to thrive! Reinforce your expectations, SOAR expectations, and guide students in the correct path. I have heard several students say they are excited about their end of the year celebration. Remember to connect to your students and to keep your JOY sparked. Starting Monday through the end of the year, except your EOY celebration day, feel free to wear jeans if it brings you JOY. Why not EOY celebration day? I think that this is an important day for you as a teacher, but also for our students and families. You will be presenting and taking pictures-so let’s look nice. Thanks you for another successful week! Have a great weekend!

End of Year Celebrations

If you are sending home information to your parents about the End of Year Celebrations, please let them know that we will begin each event in the classroom and then go to the playground area for a picnic. Parents can bring their child lunch or a lunch can be purchased from the cafeteria.

We are encouraging parents to utilize our sign up genius for each event for a faster sign in process when arriving on campus. Each visitor must be prepared to present ID upon request as it is required for entry into the building. We will have separate check in areas set up for those that have pre-registered . We have been working on this process and hope to make it a process that will benefit our visitors for these special events. The sign up genius' are shown below.

PK - 4th grade:


5th grade:


Thanks for sharing this information, if you are sending out information.

Employee Contact Cards/Emergency Informaiton

Please complete the Employee Information/Emergency Contact card and return to Leigh Ann's inbox or mailbox no later than Wednesday, June 1st. We MUST have these cards on file prior to leaving for the summer break. We are asking for them by June 1st so that you can mark this item off of your End of Year Check Out Sheet:)

This is an easy task to complete and we appreciate your cooperation1

End of Year Check Outs

The End of Year Check Out Sheets are coming! We have one for Professional staff and one for Paraprofessional staff members. Not all items on the professional list apply to paraprofessionals we hope that this makes it a simpler and faster process. Please do not obtain signatures prior to dates listed on the form and to please get signatures on your own form only, do not bring multiple forms or someone else's sheet for signatures.

Refrigerators & Freezers

A quick reminder that we will need to clean out all refrigerators including freezers before leaving for the summer break! All items will need to be taken home by the end of the day on Friday, June 3rd. Anything left will be thrown away. However, please do not leave the clean up to our custodians. They have so much work to do over the summer getting our building ready for the upcoming school year that this is a task we don't want to add to their list.

It has been mentioned that the lounge freezer is currently packed full and hard to get things in and out of. Please look in there and take home anything that is not needed.

Thank you all for your cooperation!
