Tips for a Successful Drop Off

  • always use the southern most entrance
  • avoid coming in the bus entrance
  • do not drop off at the front of the building-that is for buses
  • if you have an appointment, or need to come inside with your student, please park in the main parking lot towards the back row

Comet Credit Store!

Created by last year's 6th grade PBL classes, our Credit system is directly tied to our student IDs earning credits for doing what they are supposed to do and going above and beyond. There are also ways to lose credits by making choices that are less than favorable. Students will be able to purchase opportunities and products on Mondays, Weds, and Fridays during lunch time in the Concession Stand (now to be known as the Comet Store during MS lunch).

If you would like to help us fund the Comet Store, please let Bookkeeper Ana know 973-9999.

Picture Day!

Monday, Oct. 3rd, 8am-3pm

CMA Auditorium

We are looking for six parent volunteers to help with picture day. We need 2 runners that would get classes from their classroom and walk them to the auditorium. We need 2 hair/outfit checkers to tame those flyaway hairs and fix collars or buttons before pictures are taken and remove the occasional smudge. And, we need 2 class monitors that would help put kids in the lines for the photographers and help spell last names for younger students (class lists will be provided). Picture day will start at 8AM and run until 2:50 PM with an hour break for lunch. If you are interested in helping our students look their best for their pictures and the yearbook we need you! Please contact me, Christina Swedberg, the Lifetouch and Yearbook Coordinator at

If you ordered a yearbook for last year, they should be here early October!!! Thank you for your patience with the printing issues.
