From Mr. Wingfield


The last couple of days it has finally felt a little "Fall"ish in the mornings. The afternoons remind us, however, there is still a hint of Summer hanging around. This is the time of year where we cant decide what to wear because it is cold and then it is hot, but mostly this is when kids start feeling under the weather with sore throats, sniffles, and some flu like symptoms. As tempting as it may be to send the kids to school, please keep them home if they have any fever or are symptomatic. Please see a doctor if you are not sure.

We don't have any sports after school this week, but Volleyball will be playing in the Rudder tournament this weekend. Go out and support them if you can.

Another reminder to encourage student to use the new PAPER tutorial program for help at home or at school when they have questions or added support. See the flyer below.

This is also the first week of a new 6 weeks. It is so important that kids start and end strong. Our teachers have tutorial times posted outside of their doors and students are encouraged to come in and get some extra help when they need it.

As always, if you have any questions please let us know

From the Bus Barn

We are having a lot of students getting on buses in the afternoon and then getting off the bus again to go to the car rider lanes. Please plan ahead or call the front office during the school day if their will be a change of ridership. Safety of students is our priority and knowing our bus ridership and accounting for all students is best when we know ahead of time.

Thanks for your support

From Mrs. Martin

The Capturing Kids Heart focus for October will be Self-Directed Behavior

Self-Direction is the ability and learned skill to cast a vision of future goals and then take intentional steps toward who, where, and what we want to be. Instead of focusing on things to control or avoid, we emphasize our responsibility to make positive choices related to our emotions, attitudes, and actions.

We will be talking to students about positive choices and making sure our actions reflect those.

Our Student of the Month will also be someone who represents the quality of self-directed behavior and models it daily in class and on the campus.

Paper Tutoring Program

The district has rolled out our PAPER tutoring program. Our English classes are currently making sure all students can log in and understand how to utilize this great resource. Students may use PAPER to get 24/7 tutoring at home and at school. Parents can also use in order to help students with their homework. Please remind your students at home to use this tool when they are needing extra support with homework.
