Learning Goals...

STEM Friday

Due to our assembly with Rowdy this Friday, we will not be having STEM Friday. Next Friday is the end of the six weeks and our Boot Scootin' Celebration. STEM Friday will return October 9th.

Electronic Devices

At this time, there is no educational need for our students to bring in any electronic devices. We ask that if your child has a personal cell phone that they have them turned off during school hours. Students will be reminded to turn off their devices if they have them on. However, continued use after reminders could result in the cell phone or device being taken up by a teacher. You will be notified in advance if devices are allowed.


Remind is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students & parents. Subscribe by text, email or using the Remind app. All personal information is kept private. Teachers will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs. Visit to learn more.

To join Remind, simply Text to 81010 the correct unique class code. (ex. @abbotta)




There is also one for our school--@claralove

Parent Conferences

It's time for Parent Conferences... Look for an email from your child's teacher with a way to sign up. We look forward to seeing everyone.

Ride Changes/Absences

If you need to change the way that your child gets home, please email Mrs. Jaggars before 2:00 pm.

All emails must include child's name, homeroom teacher and date/dates the change is to be effective.

Also, if your child will be absent or was absent, please send in a note stating the reason why. You can send it directly to Mrs. Jaggars if you like.
