Sunday News at 7

Did you know that we send out a robocall every Sunday night at 7:00 pm? It contains all of the activities and events that are happening for the week. We also use the system for attendance, school closings, and emergency calls. If you aren't getting the calls, please contact the front office to make sure we have an updated phone number. You don't want to miss out on important information!

We love our Middle School Volleyball Team!!

School Uniforms

Our scholars are looking good in their Thea Bowman uniforms. Our goal is for 100% of scholars to be dressed correctly daily.

ALL scholars are expected to be in the correct uniform from head to toe.

Don't forget:

  1. Hoodies are NOT allowed to be worn during the school day. Students may wear a white, burgundy, or grey sweater.
  2. As the weather changes, thermals or long sleeve shirts worn under uniform shirts, must be white, burgundy, grey, or black. Leggings or tights worn under skirts, must also be white, burgundy, grey, or black.
  3. All black boots may be worn all day. Pants must fit on top of the boots. Any other color boots will have to be changed and scholars will have to put on their uniform shoes.
  4. A BELT MUST be worn with pants and shorts that have belt hooks.
  5. Solid black, solid white or a combination of black and white shoes may be worn. No additional colors including the sole, logos, symbols and writing.
  6. For gym, jogging pants and shorts must be loose fitting-NO leggings, jeggings, fitted yoga pants, compression pants, etc.
  7. Uniform shirts MUST be TUCKED IN.

Any scholars in violation of the uniform policy will lose Kickboard points. Consistent violation of the policy will result in a discipline referral.

Community Spotlight

Thank you so much to Ms. Eve Gomez, one of our school board members, and the volunteers of Junior Achievement for ensuring our scholars had an awesome JA Day. Community volunteers came and taught our scholars about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work-readiness through hands on activities and real world examples.

School Closings & Delays

Please be advised that if the school is closed we will reach out to families in the following manner:

1. Automated phone call system (robocalls)

2. Posting on our Facebook page:

3. Posting on the Emergency Closing Center website:

4. Posting on our website:

Please be sure that your phone number is updated in our system. You can update your number by calling the school or sending a note with your child.

We advise all parents to develop a plan for the care of your scholars when school is closed. When school closes, especially after the school day has begun, scholars need to know specifically where they are to go and what they are to do. Please be very clear in instructing a scholar on what they are to do.

Morning Arrival Procedure

The safety of our scholars is our number one priority. Here are a few things to remember during your drop off experience:

  1. The drop off lane is the right-hand lane in front of the Polk street doors. The left-hand lane is the passing lane.
  2. Scholars are to exit from the RIGHT PASSENGER SIDE ONLY!!
  3. Parents, please do not park or exit vehicles in the drop off lane.
  4. Once scholars exit the vehicle safely, carefully merge into the passing lane by following the crossing guard's directions.
  5. If you need to park, please pull in front of the "DROP OFF ONLY" sign or the parking lot.

One of our male staff members will be there to greet you and your scholar with a smile!

We thank you all in advance for your cooperation!
