The start of a fresh semester!

It was so great to welcome our students back last week! Staff and students were excited to see one another and we jumped back into rigorous learning. This semester will be full of new exploration and greatness. I'm excited to get started!

Morning Drop Off

As a reminder, car riders may not be dropped off until 7:30 am. You may see students waiting outside that are here for athletics or rode their bikes. This is especially important during the winter months as morning temperatures can be frigid. Thank you for your help in keeping students safe and warm!

Health Reminders

It is imperative that we all do our part to help keep ourselves and others healthy during this time of year. Please remember to keep your student home if they are not feeling well. Increased hand washing is also a great idea!

MAP Testing

Our students will begin their second round of MAP (Measure of Academic Performance) testing on January 18th. This assessment helps measure their growth and progress, and gives our staff valuable information in meeting each student's needs. Please encourage your student to give their best effort on their MAP tests!

Report Cards

Our first semester ended on Friday, December 17th and report cards were sent home with students last week. Please ask your student if you have not seen their report card yet.
