Weekly Motto:

I pay attention to what I tell myself

  • What is your self-talk about school, homework or siblings? Does your self-talk make you feel better or worse? If you change your self-talk to something more positive, what would it sound like?

Not All Masks Are Created Equal:

All of our students and staff are required to wear face masks while on campus. Neck gaiters, bandanas, and valve masks are not allowed per MCDPH guidelines. Please make sure your student has a clean mask that fits over their nose and mouth each day that they come to school. We appreciate your cooperation! ~Nurse Danielle

Power School!

Please make sure you are checking your child's grades on Power School, In addition, you should be referencing our Essential Assignments chart provided weekly by your child's teacher. Both of these will ensure you are informed of your child's current academic progress.


Free breakfast and lunch have been approved for all students through the end of 2020. So please keep in mind that packing a lunch is not necessary. In the event your student wants to bring their own lunch, we strongly encourage disposable lunch sacks to avoid germ transfer between home/school.

If your child is planning on getting breakfast at school we ask that you please arrange drop off with enough time for them to consume their breakfast prior to the final bell at 8:15. Thank you for your cooperation with this,
