November Update

Principal Update

I want to say Thank you again to all the parents who donated candy to the Trunk or Treat event! The students really enjoyed trick or treating through the various cars to get candy.

We had a wonderful turn out for virtual parent teacher conferences, I know this was different but from what I heard from teachers and parents that it was nice to hear from your child's teacher about how the year is going. In CKLA (reading curriculum) students are learning about plants, various civilizations, and empires in the Middle Ages. For math, teachers are putting a focus on math fact fluency into the WIN time.

Below are some updates about things that are happening at the Elementary school for this month. I have enjoyed getting to know more students everyday. Thank you for sharing your children with us and helping them grow. I look forward to a wonderful November!

Veteran's Day Program November 11

I am so grateful that our school takes pride in honoring Veteran's and their service to our country. To all the parents who are Veteran's, I want to say Thank you for your service and dedication to our country.

As many of you have probably seen on Facebook or our district website, that our normal traditional Veteran's Day Program as been changed due to our current world we live in.

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have been working hard learning and preparing for the program. However, the Administrative team as well as the music teachers feel that it would be best to only have the 5th grade students perform this year during the program. This will allow for students to be able to spread out and social distance appropriately. All elementary students will be singing with masks on during the performance.

While we are not allowing parents or community members to attend this live, we will be streaming it with the Live Ticket. This link will be posted on our Facebook page as well as our website. The rest of the elementary students will be watching the program from their classrooms via the link as well.

I hope you will be able to tune into the program on November 11 beginning at 9 am with the rest of the K-12 students.
